Implementation of Improved Performance Grade (PG) of Asphalt Binders

Researchers will work with the TxDOT Materials and Test Division to sample and test binders from several different existing road sections that have been in service for a few years across the state. The research team will also provide assistance to TxDOT in terms of identifying appropriate test equipment to conduct the test, demonstrating the method and assisting lab technicians to run the test in the long-term as needed, and provide spreadsheets that facilitate analysis from test data to obtain parameters of interest.
