As the rapid development and booming construction of civil engineering, the renewable of the civil engineering materials has gotten lots of attention. Especially in the face of the growing challenge of climate change, the UN secretary General has issued a "red alert", calling on countries to develop new plans to achieve carbon neutrality. The transportation industry is the important energy consumption and carbon emission source. The carbon dioxide emissions in the transportation sector should peak as soon as possible, and the low-carbon development of the industry is imperative. So the reuse and regeneration of civil engineer, the application of solid waste materials in civil engineering, the decrease of energy consumption in processing and application of civil engineering materials are essential.


This Special Issue entitled "Environmentally friendly and renewable civil engineer materials", focuses on the renewable of civil engineering materials and the application of solid waste materials in civil engineering. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:


-Renewability and recyclability of civil engineering materials (this would include also asphalt and cement and environment friendly materials);

-Application of solid waste materials in civil engineering;

-Numerical simulation;

-Engineering design.


Sustainable constructions, civil engineering materials, waste materials, environmentally friendly civil engineer materials

    Effects of Filler-Asphalt Ratio on the Properties of Lignin and Polyester Fiber Reinforced SMPU/SBS Modified Asphalt Mortar

    Wenjing Xia, JinHui Wang, Tao Xu, Nan Jiang
    Journal of Renewable Materials, DOI:10.32604/jrm.2023.026971
    (This article belongs to this Special Issue: Environmentally Friendly and Renewable Civil Engineer Materials)
    Abstract To understand the effects of filler-asphalt ratio on different properties of lignin and polyester fiber reinforced shape memory polyurethane (SMPU)/styrene butadiene styrene (SBS) composite modified asphalt mortar (PSAM), as well as to reveal the reinforcing and toughening mechanisms of lignin and polyester fibers on PSAM, SMPU, SBS and mineral powder were first utilized to prepare PSAM. Then the conventional, rheological and anticracking properties of lignin fiber reinforced PSAM (LFAM) and polyester fiber reinforced PSAM (PFAM) at different filler-asphalt ratios were characterized. Test results indicate that the shear strength, deformation resistance and viscosity are increased after adding 0.8wt% lignin fiber or… More >
