This afternoon webinar, hosted by CIHT East Midlands, will give an overview of recent advances in Pavement Engineering and insight into recent research undertaken at the University of Nottingham in these areas.
This talk will give a snapshot of three areas of recent research at the University of Nottingham on topics related to pavements.
1) The use of warm-mix asphalt to allow early opening to traffic;
2) An innovative ‘smart pavement’ sensor;
3) Texture, skid resistance and aquaplaning.
The first two presentations will be presented by Taqia Rahman and Mario Paredes; Nick Thom will present the third.
Members and non-members are welcome to join us. It will be of particular interest to highway engineers and pavement specialists (at all levels).
Nick Thom, Assistant Professor at University of Nottingham
Nick is a university lecturer with many years of practical experience in pavement engineering and has been involved in research on a wide variety of topics. He has a particular interest in the development of simple design techniques based on fundamental understanding of materials and their properties.
Taqia Rahman, PhD Researcher at University of Nottingham
A researcher from Indonesia, investigating the factors affecting early opening to traffic following asphalt paving.
Mario Paredes, PhD Researcher at University of Nottingham
A researcher from Ecuador, investigating the use of an innovative sensor to allow smart monitoring of pavement internal damage.
