Heartiest Congratulations to Kunal Kakria and Nithin Nerella of Civil Engineering for getting selected for “Research Studentship Programme” at the department of Highway and Pavement Engineering, Universiti Putra Malaysia, UPM in collaboration with Novapave Sdn Bhd for a duration of 2.5 months.
They studied the possibilities of utilizing Tyre Rubber as filler in asphalt and fiber with varying gradations in asphalt, and studied their effects while finding their scope in road construction. They also worked with different materials like Cold Set Asphalt (Vialit, Germany), Fiber Mastic Asphalt (Malaysia), Runway pavement (Shell, Indonesia) etc. performing the experimental analysis by resilient modulus, Flow and stability, Marshall Fuel test etc.
