Steering Committee Annual meeting 2016

STEERING COMThe Steering Committee gathered o 16 June at University of Cantabria in Santander (Spain).

The DURABROADS coordinator chaired this meeting which was used to exchange information about different tasks being completed by various partners in the development of the DIRUABROADS asphalt.

The consortium tested in previous months three different types of bitumen which could increase performance and quality of current products used in the market. In parallel, partners are carrying other tests to develop the most convenient asphalt mixture for the DURABROADS modified bitumen. In addition to the increase of the resilience, researchers aim at increasing RAP and slags in the mixture to create a greener final product.

In all cases, the asphalt mixes designed fulfilled the European standards so have been built in the wearing course for the highest traffic category. Lab test will continue to optimize the best performing asphalt which will be deployed in a real road in Spain during the fial stage of the project.
