MIT researchers find emissions of U.S. buildings and pavements can be reduced by around 50 percent even as concrete use increases.
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.
