Effect of Modified Bitumen on Physico-Mechanical Properties of Asphalt Concrete

The investigation results of type B fine asphalt concrete and its form modified by rapeseed oil epoxide are represented. The efficiency of ERO addition and its positive effect on the physico-mechanical properties of asphalt concrete has been established.

Determination of Hydroxy Groups in the Modified Epoxy Oligomers Using IR-Spectroscopy

The use of IR-spectroscopy has been proposed to determine the content of hydroxy groups in the modified functional oligomers based on bisphenol A diglycidyl ether. Apart from hydroxy groups the investigated oligomers contain epoxy or peroxy, carboxy or acrylic groups.
