Research on Concrete Applications for Sustainable Transportation (RE-CAST)

This project has many parts, and the NYU team is currently working with Rutgers on the RE-CAST 2D subproject. This subproject aims to test the bend strength of reinforced concrete that is repaired and strengthened using the four techniques: External Prestressing, Fiber-Reinforced Ferrocement Composite, Fiber-Reinforced Self Consolidating Concrete, and Fiber-Reinforced.

Development of Autonomous Enforcement Approach using Advanced Weigh-In-Motion (A-WIM) System to Minimize Impact of Overweight Trucks on Infrastructure

In this study, the team investigated the effect of overweight trucks on the pavement and bridge damage from a national perspective to develop the most efficient enforcement approach to minimize infrastructure damage. The enforcement approach will include the continuation of the development of the A-WIM system and expanding its deployment.

Integration and Operation of an Advanced Weigh-in-Motion (A-WIM) System for Autonomous Enforcement of Overweight Trucks

Trucks have been an integral part of the freight movement network in distributing goods and services to various communities; however, a percentage of these trucks are often overloaded beyond legal load limits. A more practical and efficient OW enforcement scheme would be needed to discourage the trucking industry from overloading their fleets.
