Tracking Changes in Asphalt Microstructure Resulting from Traffic
2 January 2015

Researchers from the University of California-Davis are studying a type of pavement called open-graded friction courses (OGFCs), which have been used on roads in the United States since the 1950s. They recently used Imaris to study the microstructure and microstructure movement of these asphalt mixes under full-scale traffic to better understand how these properties affect performance and failure.
