An innovative, electrified-pavement design created by Rutgers researchers can enable efficient Electric-Vehicle charging and has the potential to help transform roadways into sustainable energy sources in the future.
Inaccurate network pavement data can impact pavement management decisions such as roadway repairs and more. CAIT researchers at the Rutgers Asphalt Pavement Lab are working with NJDOT to test new pavement inspection equipment and locations to ensure data is accurate and representative of roads in New Jersey.
This new research project will help to identify best practices to facilitate truck movements and minimize truck wait time at JFK International Airport for land-side cargo movements through a systems analysis of cargo movement and logistics.
The primary goal of this study is to develop and deploy a rapid, accurate lead sensing system for lead analysis in drinking water. In addition to accuracy, it is expected to demonstrate that the system can be used to sample a high volume of samples in a field setting with all of the difficulties that may come along with it.
The goal of the study is to evaluate the resultant asphalt binder and mixture performance of the plastic-modified material. The expected outcome is a new structural material for long, last asphalt pavements, as well as a potential end use for recycling plastics.
