Linear viscous approach to predict rut depth in asphalt mixtures (2018)
Journal Article
Al-Mosawe, H., Thom, N., Airey, G., & Albayati, A. (in press). Linear viscous approach to predict rut depth in asphalt mixtures. Construction and Building Materials, 169, doi:10.1016/j.conbuildmat.2017.11.065. ISSN 0950-0618

Rutting in asphalt mixtures is a very common type of distress. It occurs due to the heavy load applied and slow movement of traffic. Rutting needs to be predicted to avoid major deformation to the pavement. A simple linear viscous method is used i... Read More

Churn flow in high viscosity oils and large diameter columns (2017)
Journal Article
Mohammed, S. K., Hasan, A., Dimitrakis, G., & Azzopardi, B. J. (2018). Churn flow in high viscosity oils and large diameter columns. International Journal of Multiphase Flow, 100, doi:10.1016/j.ijmultiphaseflow.2017.11.018. ISSN 0301-9322

Churn flow is an important intermediate flow regimoccurring in between slug and annular flow patterns in two-phase flow, with profound implications in chemical and petroleum industry. The majority of studies to date in churn flow has been carried out... Read More

Effect of aggregate gradation on the stiffness of asphalt mixtures (2015)
Journal Article
Al-Mosawe, H., Thom, N., Airey, G., & Ai-Bayati, A. (2015). Effect of aggregate gradation on the stiffness of asphalt mixtures. International Journal of Pavement Engineering and Asphalt Technology, 16(2), doi:10.1515/ijpeat-2015-0008. ISSN 2051-8234

Aggregate gradation plays an important role in the behaviour of asphalt mixtures. Packing of aggregate is a very important factor that will be affected by changing the aggregate gradation. Many researchers have investigated different ways of describi... Read More
