The project will encompass forensic testing on extracted cores of the stone matrix asphalt rubber (SMAR) material placed on I-295. Cores were provided to the Rutgers Asphalt/Pavement Laboratory (RAPL) at CAIT via Advanced Infrastructure and Design (AID).
Performance testing on cores will determine the following volumetric and mechanical properties, bulk specific gravity and air voids, permeability, fatigue cracking, rutting resistance, and moisture sensitivity.
