General summary and outlook
2013 (English)In: RILEM State-of-the-Art Reports, Springer, 2013, 429-438 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Final considerations based on the experience and feedback of this RILEM technical committee TC 206-ATB on “Advanced Testing and Characterization of Bituminous Materials” are given. Some open questions within the general methodology as introduced in Chap. 1 and used as guideline for RILEM activities are listed. Future prospects and direction of activities of joint voluntary research efforts within the frame of such asphalt-related committees are also discussed. It is suggested that these future efforts will most certainly have to focus even more on sustainability and environmental aspects but without neglecting general materials and systems quality aspects during production and construction as well as safety and performance during use. Future activities will also have to dealwith multifunctionality aspects of pavements and multi-scaling approaches as a basis for better understanding and tailoring of pavements and pavement materials.
