||Pavement Surface Properties Consortium - A Research Program at the Virginia Smart Road
Associate Director for Structures
||Through a regional pooled fund, this program of research will focus on optimizing pavement surface texture characteristics. The initial focus of the program will be the application of inertial and laser-based equipment for measuring pavement surface properties. The five-year program will involve at least the following:|
- establish equipment comparison and verification facility and host annual equipment roundup
- evaluate new and existing methods and technologies for measurement of functional highway surface properties
- conduct specific studies that require measurement of pavement surface properties under controlled traffic or environmental conditions on different surfaces.
