Pavement, rail track and airfield materials include bitumen, asphalt, hydraulically bound materials, unbound granular materials and soils.
Research activities address the key distress mechanisms of flow and plastic deformation; cracking and fracture; and environmental damage.
Key growth areas include micro-structural characterisation using X-Ray Computer Tomography (CT) and physico-chemical analysis of the material components and their respecitve interfaces. This is of critical importance since the bulk mechanical properties of particulate materials depend on the structural and mechanical properties of the individual particles and the combined physical and chemical processes acting between them.
