Evaluating the Microstructure of Photoluminescent Concrete Pavement Containing Strontium-Aluminate, Acrylic and Recycled Waste Glass


This paper constructs the photoluminescent concrete pavement (PhotoCP) mixing the photoluminescent material (Strontium-Aluminate) with recycled waste glass and transparent acrylic to visible the neighbourhood streets without streetlights. The non-destructive analyses of photoluminescent materials were conducted using the X-Ray Fluorescence, X-Ray diffraction, and Scanning Electron Microscopy instruments to understand the behaviour of atoms in photoluminescent materials when they interact with radiation. The compressive strength test examined the load bearing capacity of PhotoCP. A 30cm x 230cm test bed was constructed at a neighbourhood street in Peshawar, Pakistan to assess the impact of photoluminescent materials on lighting the neighbourhood street. The non-destructive analyses and compressive strength test show that PCP specimens have good interlocking capability, structural strength and durability. The testbed experiment observed the illuminance of PhotoCP for a period of 6 to 8 hours with highest lumen intensity of 1-3 lux from sunset to 8:30 pm.
