visit website What is the CREATEs Lab?

The Center for Research and Education in Advanced Transportation Engineering Systems (CREATEs) is housed at the South Jersey Technology Park at Rowan University; Rowan University’s West Campus. This Research & Development (R&D) center provides resources to conduct cutting-edge research that will drive the regional economy through the creation of permanent full-time jobs and high-end workforce-development opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students at the Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering as well as professional training and certification programs. CREATEs aims to enhance the transportation industry through the creation of improved construction materials and pavement technologies, by developing solutions to ease traffic congestion, and introducing efficiencies to improve construction and infrastructure. CREATEs brings together the resources of an award-winning, accredited Rowan University Construction Materials Laboratory (RUCOM) and the Rowan University Accelerated Pavement Testing Facility (RUAPTF) that is equipped with a Dynatest Mark IV Heavy Vehicle Simulator (HVS).

 

RUCOM is an award-winning, AMRL-certified (AASHTO Materials Reference Laboratory) state-of-the-art laboratory equipped with up-to-date equipment and testing devices. These devices allow for advanced characterization of asphalt mixtures, asphalt binders, and soils and aggregates. In addition, RUCOM is equipped with the most up-to-date computational tools that allow researchers at CREATEs to model sophisticated pavement problems and find solutions for them.

 

The state-of-the-art full-scale accelerated pavement testing facility (RUAPTF) consists of a 5,000 square-foot, pre-engineered fabric structure building that contains four full-scale pavement testing strips. The building serves two purposes: (1) conducting testing on sections protected from natural weather elements and (2) storing/housing equipment. Outside the fabric structure, the facility consists of 12 additional full-scale pavement sections that can be utilized to conduct advanced and field-representative pavement research. All full-scale sections at RUAPTF can facilitate constructing upwards of 3 feet deep pavements and some sections may be designed with water table control capability within the supporting base and subgrade layers. RUAPTF is equipped with a Heavy Vehicle Simulator (HVS) that was obtained through a cooperative agreement between Rowan University and the Army Corps of Engineers (USACE).
