Ongoing research

Our research corresponds to on-going changes worldwide in the asphalt paving industry:

  • A focus on quality and risks: Longer guarantee periods, shifting design tasks and risks towards contractors, more focus on value instead of costs, higher penalties;

  • Decreasing availability of time and space to complete the work at the construction site;

  • High variability in working methods and results; and

  • The inflow of many (high-tech) technologies from manufactures.
