One of our research papers, Effect of hydration and silicone resin on Basic Oxygen Furnace slag and its asphalt mixture, has been selected as the ESI Highly Cited Papers (HCP).
Here is the Abstract of this paper:
The primary purpose of this research was to evaluate the effect of hydration and silicone resin on material characteristics of Basic Oxygen Furnace (BOF) slag and performances of BOF slag asphalt mixture. BOF slags modified by different methods were prepared. Surface textures, elements distributions, pore characteristics and volume stability of various BOF slags were first studied. Then the performances of asphalt mixtures containing various BOF slags including volume stability, thermal property and moisture resistance were well evaluated. Results showed that the combined modification of hydration and silicone resin can lower the asphalt absorption of BOF slag, and improve the asphalt mixture’s volume stability and thermal efficiency, which meant the applicability and economy of BOF slag asphalt mixture got enhanced when proper combined modification was applied on BOF slag.

Since 2013, Dr. Xiao is deeply involved in Research on Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) Characterization and Design Bituminous Materials with Lower VOC emissions. Here is a list of his Journal Publications on VOC topic. Furthermore, Dr. Xiao gave an oral presentation in TRC conference in the title of Design Bituminous Materials with Lower VOC Emissions.
Paper 1 first introduced test methods including TG-MS and UV-Vis that can be used to characterize VOCs. VOC reduction resulted from active carbon filler and SBS were studied by means of Ion current intensity, residual volatile speed and UV-Vis calibration curve. The rheological behaviors were also presented in this paper.
Paper No.2 discussed the degradation changes after VOC emission process. Weight reduction, phase angle, complex shear modulus and master curves were presented. LDHs influence on basic properties of bitumen were investigated as well.
UV-VIS was the only one method that used in Paper 3. UV-Vis calibration curve was included in this paper. Total amount reduction of SBS, C and LDHs were presented.
Paper 4 and 5 discussed the possibility of using LDHs to reduce VOCs. Test methods including TG and TG-MS were employed to reduction behavior. Ion current intensity of multi molecules were investigated. Residual volatile speed was studied as well.
During June 6-8, Dr. Yue attended the first Transportation Research Congress (TRC) that was held in the National Convention Center in Beijing. TRC is jointly organized by universities, research institutes, industries, and China Highway and Transportation Society. It aims at providing an international platform for incubating, leading, demonstrating and implementing innovations, and ultimately evolves into a think tank for transportation innovations. Researchers on the construction and building materials from all of the world joined this conference.
It was very proud for Dr. Yue to get an opportunity to give a presentation in TRC conference. His presentation title was Design Bituminous Materials with Lower VOC Emissions. This presentation focus on presenting the research results by using activated carbon and layered double hydroxides to reduce the VOC emissions from bituminous materials.
