Laboratory activities focus on the study and analysis of materials used in road construction, particularly those used in asphalt mixes.


Among the laboratory´s various research lines is the development of new testing procedures for bituminous mixes, including direct transile testing and shear testing  for evaluating asphalt layer binding tests, both patented by the Universidad Politecnica de Catalunya. The laboratory is also working to develop new pavement materials, along with ways to reuse waste materials to prolong pavement life and minimize environmental damage.


The laboratory teaches undergraduate and postgraduate engineering courses, and offers technical assistance to asphalt manufacturers, construction companies, and highway administrations in the areas of product development and road construction quality-control.
