Two National Labs

  • Liquid-Lab (“SHRP PLUS” capable)
  • AMAAC-IMT Certified Mix Design and Aggregates Characterization: Lab & Technicians
  • Mix Design (Superpave Level 3 & AMAAC Level 4)
  • Laboratory instrumentation includes:
    • Equipment and technology to test complete SHRP binder grades (MP1) and Superpave level 3 mix designs.
    • Equipment to test binder grades: Dynamic Shear Rheometer, Bending Beam Rheometer, Rolling Thin Film Oven, Pressure-Aging Vessel.
    • Equipment for mix designs: gyratory compactor, Hamburg Wheel Track, dynamics-resilient modulus and dynamic fatigue testing, etc.

Research and Development Equipment for Liquids

  • Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR)
  • Thin Layer Chromatography (TLC)
  • Thermo-Mechanical Analyzer (TMA)
  • Differential Scanning Calorimeter (DSC)

System Application and Engineering Pavement Design

  • Pavement Management Systems Services
  • Pavement Condition Survey Vehicle:
    Pathway is a vehicle equipped to measure the longitudinal roadway profile in order to calculate pavement roughness (IRI), rut depth, surface wear, joint and cracking faults—all utilized to make a Pavement Distress Survey and simulate the service condition provided to the user.
  • Heavy Weight Deflectometer (HWD):
    HWD equipment is used to analyze pavement structure capabilities for maintenance and rehabilitation strategies. The HWD evaluates the pavement’s bearing capacity by analyzing its load and deflection capacities.
  • MU-Meter to evaluate the pavement’s friction index:
    The friction number is a safety pavement condition level and is used for the evaluation of maintenance and rehabilitation strategies.
  • 8 Secmair one-pass Chip Seal Machines and one microsurfacing paver.
  • 3 portable, high-capacity crushing systems: Each system unit has jaw, cone and screener.
