Two of our PhD students, Ing. Pavel Sperka and Ing. Jiri Sachr, who work on research projects at the road laboratory of the AdMaS Center, participated in the international conference Celebrating 20 Years Road Materials and Pavement Design at the end of March 2019. The conference was held in Lisbon, Portugal, and presented the best contributions in the RMPD scientific journal on road construction materials.
As part of the conference, they were able to establish contact with a portugese professor, Ana Chistina Freire, who is engaged in testing reinforced asphalt layers with glass and carbon fiber grids. In addition, a meeting with a professor from India, Krishna Prapoorna, who is engaged in the development and testing of asphalt mixtures with rubber modified asphalt rubber (crushed old tires) took place. Subjects of both of these meetings are very closely related to research projects that are, or have been, solved in the AdMaS Research Center, and may potentially help future international collaboration.
