Completed Research Projects

  1. Developed mechanistic design concepts based Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) overlay thickness design procedures through a proper structural evaluation of existing in service pavements using nondestructive Falling Weight Deflectometer (FWD) testing in order to improve Illinois Department of Transportation’s (IDOT) current Pavement Management (News) (Final Report)
  2. Developed improved pavement rehabilitation procedures based on Falling Weight Deflectometer (FWD)  backcalculation (NEXTRANSProject No. 094IY04) (Report)
  3. Evaluated the nighttime visibility performance of 3M AWP and 3M 380WR ES Durable Tape under Dry, Wet, and Rainy Conditions in order to propose recommendations  to increase safety on ODOT‘s highway network (Report).
