Project Details

Description

Asphalt Pavements Temperature Effects on overall Urban Heat Island and CO2 Impact Asphalt Pavements Temperature Effects on overall Urban Heat Island and CO2 Impact Arizona State University (ASU) was asked by the Asphalt Pavement Alliance to conduct research and provide documentation in three areas: - Research, document, and publish the extent that Open Graded Friction Course (OGFC) and porous pavements can reduce pavement temperature; - Research, document, and publish the extent/magnitude of reflected UV radiation versus pavement surface type and model effect on heating adjacent buildings and air. - Research, document, and publish the extent/magnitude of pavement temperature on overall Urban Heat Island (UHI) effect, including a unit measure of CO2 impact
