RUTGERS ASPHALT ANALYSIS TOOL PACK

 

Cold Semi-Circular Bend(SCB)Direct Compact Tension (DCT)Hamburg Wheel-Track

 

Innvention Summary:

Modern asphalt pavement performance testing has quickly evolved into simple physical testing procedures with intensive and complex analyses of collected data. 

To facilitate larger adoption of the testing protocols and associated data analysis by both the private industry and DOTs, engineers in the Rutgers Center for Advanced Infrastructure and Transportation (CAIT) have created the Rutgers Asphalt Analysis Took Pack (RAAT-Pack).  The software can provide analysis for several asphalt performance testing specifications by uploading an input file and clicking “Run”.  The software alleviates errors and decreases the time required for data analysis.

 

Potential Users:

Many Department of Transportation’s (DOTs) across the country require the tests performed by the RAAT-Pack software before an asphalt mixture can be used for paving. This means that all industry partners involved with or requiring asphalt pavement performance testing can benefit from use of the software.

Advantages:

This software was developed to perform analyses on several different asphalt performance tests. Other solutions analyze a single testing procedures.
