To evaluate pavement performance under specific conditions, transportation agencies must go beyond traditional testing methods.
Bouzid Choubane, PhD, PE explains how to generate better insights into pavement materials, technologies, and design methods using Accelerated Pavement Testing.
"Accelerated Pavement Testing allows us to get insights into new pavement material, technologies, and design methods that lab testing alone cannot provide. APT programs must be integrated into the overall research effort and not be siloed. For any endeavor to succeed, it must be driven by a cohesive, strategic mission and objectives."
