Description

Over the last decades, the implementation of innovative multifunctional materials for urban surfaces has produced a variety of paving solutions characterized by self-cleaning, self-healing, electricity conductive, solar reflective, sound absorbent properties and so on. Therefore, a key challenge is nowadays represented by the need for combining multi-physics properties in a single material or system for flooring. The present work concerns the development of a new outdoor paving application with enhanced acoustic, thermal, and optical performance. To this aim, eleven concrete mix-designs were tested. The composites were characterized by different aggregate size, material and additives. The aggregates included in the composite consist of (i) natural stones with different grain size s, (ii) expanded clay aggregates, and (iii) glass fragments. Acoustic, thermal, and optical measurements were performed for each sample. Additionally, a dedicated in-field monitoring campaign was carried out to characterize the albedo under summer boundary conditions. Finally, the thermal behaviour of the samples was tested in an environmental chamber using controlled boundary conditions in terms of temperature, humidity, and radiation. The results demonstrate that bigger grain size presents the best acoustic performance in terms of absorption capability, i.e. absorption coefficient of about 0.9 and 0.8 at 1000 Hz and 500 Hz, respectively. Moreover, the thermal-optical lab and field tests confirm previous literature result s demonstrating that the mix-design with the smaller grain size has the best reflectivity potential.

Innovative composite materials with enhanced acoustic, thermal, and optical performance for urban pavements: experimental characterization
