International road construction research tasks
The project entitled “Testing of multifunctional road-building materials and composites for the use of solar energy and the improvement of durability" (SEDA) is aimed at investigating the potential of pavements as a source of energy. The project essentially refers to the investigation and demonstration of the pavements to be researched in the project. The innovative asphalt composite materials and collector solutions are built on the Demonstration, Investigation and Reference Area (duraBASt) and loaded with the Mobile Load Simulator (MLS30) developed by BASt. Using a measurement program, the structural behaviour and functionality from manufacture through to the end of loading is investigated and then analysed on the basis of these results.
