Paving the Way in Georgia Transportation
- The Georgia Department of Transportation has provided a $127,500 contract for the project “Effects of Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement (RAP) Contents and Sources on Dynamic Modulus (E*) and Fatigue Performance of Asphalt Mixtures in Georgia” to be conducted by faculty from the Department of Civil and Construction Engineering: Associate Professor and Director of the Georgia Pavement and Traffic Research Center Sung-Hee Kim, Assistant Professor Jidong Yang, and Assistant Professor Young’un Seo. The research will help GDOT understand the effects of RAP on pavement, potentially leading to longer lasting, cheaper pavements and reduced maintenance costs. Dr. Kim will also conduct the project “GDOT Forensic Guide for Pavements” under a separate $125,000 contract from the department that will perform functional and structural evaluations of pavements.
