What is Accelerated Pavement Testing (APT)?

by Mark Wayne, Ph.D, P.E., on February 13, 2020

Experts recommend and use Accelerated Pavement Testing (APT) for performance validation of pavement materials and design methods. With the rising cost of materials and urgent need to improve pavement reliability, developing dependable engineering design methods and validation of those methods is critically important. 

In the video below, you can learn more about APT, how it eliminates significant variabilities found in many other types of engineering testing, and why it is therefore the highest quality pavement performance testing available.


Confirmed: Tensar Geogrid Improves Pavement Performance

Recent research by the US Army Corps of Engineers aimed to compare performance of Tensar Geogrid versus conventional methods over stiff to very stiff subgrade soils. Watch the video overview of the research based on trafficking that exceeded 800,000 ESALs.
