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.
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.
