Pavement vehicle interaction (PVI) is a complex phenomenon that is gaining more traction in the world of pavements. Efforts in the past to improve fuel economy have commonly focused on vehicle aerodynamics, tires, and engines. Recently, efforts to improve fuel economy have begun focusing on the effects of different pavement properties on vehicular rolling resistance.
This webinar will provide you with:
- A better understanding of how PVI affects the overall environmental impact of a pavement over its life-cycle
- The current state of knowledge related to pavement properties and their effect on rolling resistance
- Insight into the asphalt industry's critique on some of the current rolling resistance research being conducted
