MIT researchers are using smartphones to gather roadway information previously inaccessible to many departments of transportation.
In an award-winning paper, the PhD student and MIT CSHub research assistant measures how the weight of vehicles deteriorates pavements.
MIT postdoc explains how reflective pavements can significantly — and often indirectly — mitigate climate change and extreme heat.
Study finds simple changes in road resurfacing practices could improve gas mileage for heavy vehicles and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Concrete is the world’s most consumed construction material. Yet there’s a lot the public doesn’t know about it or its environmental impact.
CSHub researchers have developed a pavement maintenance model that considers future uncertainties to improve performance and lower cost.
The MIT Concrete Sustainability Hub will continue to study the environmental impacts of concrete and the hazard resilience of the built environment.
MIT Concrete Sustainability Hub scientist explains how rating systems akin to LEED for resilient construction can make communities more hazard-resistant.
