Abstract

The main intention of this paper is to build up a low volume and long lifetime runway by employing a composite, made up of glass aggregate, polymerized asphalt and epoxy adhesive. The foamed aggregate is manufactured from unwanted glass materials. The asphalt obtained from the distillation of petroleum is blended with polymer waste to improve its properties and to manage the wastes. Finally the adhesive is used to bind all the materials that are used to lay the runways. The laid runway, thus has a better mechanical strength and can withstand large braking force.
