SPR-4335: Environmentally Tuning Asphalt Pavements Using Phase Change Materials

It is anticipated that this study will result in the ability to more closely “tune” pavements to the environments into which they will be placed. This becomes most important for those pavements that result in the costliest delays and repairs if premature failure occurs. By better tuning pavements to their anticipated in-service environments, distresses such as thermal cracking and rutting could be greatly minimized, thus lowering pavement maintenance and rehabilitation costs.
