The Department of Road Construction at the Institute of Highway Engineering at RWTH Aachen University works on a wide range of topics related to the design and optimization of pavement structures with its research groups Test Engineering and Simulation.
The research group for Test Engineering in the field of Road Construction Technology is divided into three closely related areas of work: testing technology, construction process/installation technology, and surface properties.
Research foci in the area of Test Engineering are
The Road Construction Technology Simulation research group at the Institute of Highway Engineering at RWTH Aachen University focuses on machine-material interaction in paving processes, cyber-physical systems as a starting point for process optimization, and multiscale simulations of the mechanical behavior of asphalt mixes.
Research foci in the area of Simulation are
The Institute of Highway Engineering at RWTH Aachen University can look back on extensive experience from completed projects in all the areas mentioned. These refer to the area of research as well as to the area of application in practice. It is also thanks to our ongoing research projects that this wealth of experience is constantly growing.
