In this project several variants were developed, some of which were based on the French EME (“enrobé à module élevé”). After extensive testing in the laboratory ten variants were laid in 2006 on a heavily trafficked section of the E19 between Brussels and Antwerp. This was followed by the drafting of recommendations and performance specifications for this type of asphalt mixture, in cooperation with the Flemish department of mobility and public works (MOW). All information on this project can be found in a research report (CR43/07) published by BRRC.
Caractérisation des matériaux recyclés pour leur utilisation en construction routière et étude des déformations permanentes au moyen de l’essai triaxial cyclique (Contracts CC CCN/PN/NBN-506 and CC CCN/PN/NBN-556 – 1st September 2008 1st September 2010)
This project on the characterizing of recycled materials for use in road construction and the determination of permanent deformation by cyclic triaxial testing was carried out with the financial support of the Federal Public Service (FPS) Economy, SME’s, Self-employed and Energy.
The objective of the European project INTRO (Intelligent Roads) was to demonstrate that an efficient application of present information and communication technologies could bring «intelligence» to roads and offers unique opportunities to better manage and maintain the road network, to optimize its capacity and to make roads safer and cleaner. This three-year project was subsidized by the Sixth Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development of the European Commission (General Direction for Research).

HERMES – Harmonization of European Routine and research Measuring Equipment for Skid Resistance was a FEHRL-funded pre-normative project that aimed to lay the foundations for consistent European standardization of skid resistance measurement on roads and runways. Underlying the work was the idea that the project should give the initial impetus to the implementation of a common scale of friction, the so-called EFI (European Friction Index), together with an associated harmonized calibration procedure, in all European countries.
