Research lines

The main lines of research that we follow are:

  • Development of new tests for the mechanical characterization of asphalt materials for road surfaces.
  • Development of more efficient methods to evaluate the bending failure of bituminous mixtures and determine their service life.
  • Adaptation of bituminous mixtures to environmental conditions: reduction of manufacturing and spreading temperature, reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, recycling of aged mixtures, waste and industrial by-products, durability.
  • Analysis of the effect of manufacturing conditions on the mechanical properties of recycled mixtures to optimize recycling techniques.
  • Integrated design of mixes for thin and ultra-thin layers for construction and maintenance of pavements.
  • Perpetual pavements.
