USDOT Phase IIB
hortly after our U.S. Department of Transportation Phase II contract ended we were invited back to apply for a third contract Phase IIB. We completed our application just before the end of December 2014. We were awarded the new contract in November of 2015. This is another 2-year $750,000 contract to do more research which is needed before SR panels will be ready for roads and highways. The research includes: freeze-thaw cycling, moisture conditioning, shear testing, and advanced loading (simulates several years of heavy truck abuse in a matter of months). We are grateful to have the continued support of the USDOT as we continue to progress.
