Pavement Management Systems provides the basics for developing a pavement management system to help local governments manage their pavement network by providing an understanding of the concept and importance of road surface inventories and condition surveys.
UHPC and LMC overlays are being evaluated at Rutgers’ state-of-the-art Bridge Evaluation and Accelerated Structural Testing (BEAST®) facility, where a full-scale bridge (50 ft. simply-supported span) is being subjected to simulated highway truck traffic and environmental loading.
This fall, CAIT hosted multiple guests for tours of its Rutgers Asphalt Pavement Lab and other innovative labs and facilities on campus. From stakeholders at transportation agencies throughout the NJ/NY region to state legislators, CAIT showcased some of the impactful research happening at our labs.
At the 24th Annual NJDOT Research Showcase, Rutgers student Xiao Chen won the 2022 Outstanding University Student in Transportation Research Award for his work on the NJDOT project “Innovative Pothole Repair Materials and Techniques.”
The primary goal of this proposal is to develop modeling approaches for the beneficial use of raw and stabilized sediments in engineering applications. The intended outcome of the project is to provide guidance and methodology for modeling sediments in engineering applications.
The primary goal of this proposal is to investigate the use of steel wool in concrete to increase its crack resistance (fracture toughness and flexural strength) and enable durable, crack-free bridges.
The primary goal of this proposal is to develop a bio-mediated technique that would enable enzyme induced calcite precipitation (EICP) under varying temperatures to improve the physical properties of soil embankment and mitigate coastal erosion in the State of New Jersey.
This certification meets AASHTO standards and requirements. It also further validates equipment used in the lab and supports ongoing efforts at Rutgers to monitor and maintain New Jersey’s pavement network in partnership with NJDOT.
This course will provide attendees an overview of what a BMS is and how a BMS can help bridge owners justify needed funds, allocate money to programs, forecast condition and performance to plan for the future, do strategic analysis, select a program of projects that achieve the largest benefit over cost, and more.
