The UW-MARC has completed the WHRP (0092-14-20) TPF-5 (302) (PDF, 1.67 MB) Pooled Fund Project on "Modified Binder (PG+) Specifications and Quality Control Criteria". The state partners on this project were Colorado, Idaho, Kansas, Ohio, and Wisconsin. The intent of this project is to provide essential information to state and local agencies to support standardization of PG+ specifications by identifying PG+ test methods that are reproducible and show promise in simulating actual field performance.
The UW-MARC has completed the WHRP 0092-15-04 (PDF, 5.96 MB) Project on "Analysis and Feasibility of Asphalt Pavement Performance-Based Specifications for WISDOT". This research was funded through the Wisconsin Highway Research Program by the Wisconsin Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration.
North Carolina State University in partnership with UW-MARC has completed the NCHRP 9-50 Study on "Performance-Related Specifications for Asphaltic Binders Used in Preservation Surface Treatments".
The UW-MARC in partnership with Western Research Institue, Texas A&M University, University of Nevada-Reno, Advanced Asphalt Technologies, and National Center for Asphalt Technology has completed the 7-year project Asphalt Research Consortium under a cooperative agreement with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), bringing an extraordinary depth and range of asphalt experience to bear on significant needs of the asphalt community.
The University of Minnesota in partnership with UW-MARC, University of Illinois, and Iowa State University, has completed the Pooled Fund Study on Low Temperature Cracking of Asphalt Pavements - Phase II
MARC has completed the research for NCHRP Project 09-45 to develop tests for characterizing fillers for hot mix asphalt, working in partnership with the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Mathy Technology and Engineering.
