Title High Modulus High Fatigue Asphalt (EME) Technology Transfer
Status Active
Purpose The purpose of this project is to develop guidelines for the design of high modulus asphalt mixes as well as for the design of pavement structures containing high modulus asphalt layers.
A need was identified to investigate whether adjustments are required to the Austroads mix design and pavement structural design procedures to allow asphalts based on French Enrobés à Module Elevé (EME) technology. This technology offers the prospect of reduced asphalt thicknesses for heavy duty pavements, and lower construction and maintenance costs.
