A lab technician inspects aggregate and soil samples inside the soil/umbound materials innovation lab.Infrastructure systems are only as good as the foundation on which they are built. Much of our existing infrastructure is in dire need of foundational upgrades or rehabilitation. This lab allows researchers to investigate soils, stabilization techniques, and rehabilitation techniques that can be implemented in both the short and long term.

The Soil and Unbound Materials Innovation Lab focuses on developing solutions for using existing or locally available materials in challenging operational environments to provide resilient pavements. Activities involve understanding the fundamental material properties and their relationship to expected performance, expedited design procedures, and non-invasive rapid quality control and assurance. Solutions developed in this lab can contribute to as much as 50% cost savings in pavement renewal, reduced project delivery time, and less disruption to traffic.
