Abstract

Materials such as Koch AH—70, basalt aggregate, limestone powder and graphite particles were used to prepare conductive asphalt concrete, which is a new type of multifunctional concrete. The mix proportion by weight was shown as follows. Fine aggregates (2.36–4.75 mm): fine aggregates (<2.36mm): lime-stone powder: asphalt=120∶240∶14∶30. The content of added graphite particles ranged from 0% to 20% (by the weight of asphalt concrete). A conductive asphalt concrete with a resistivity around 10–103Ω·m was obtained. Special attention was paid to the effects of graphite content, graphite physical-chemical properties, asphalt content and temperature on the resistivity. Furthermore, an attempt was made to develop an electrically conductive model for asphalt concrete.
