Infrared technology allows for year round pothole repair at substantial savings and improved repair life.
Pavement Corporation – Partnering with University of Maryland through MIPS (Maryland Industrial Partnerships) to focus on infrared asphalt repair as a faster, better, less expensive and more environmentally friendly way to fix asphalt.
Since 1987, the partnership program run through the university’s A. James Clark School of Engineering in College Park has helped create products that generated $28.1 billion in revenue and more than 5,000 current jobs. Add Pavement Corporation to the list of past recipients which include Under Armour, Black & Decker, Hughes Network Systems, Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman.
Professor Charles Schwartz is the partnering with Pavement Corporation. Professor Charles W. Schwartz is the chair of the Clark School’s Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. Schwartz received his B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in Civil Engineering from MIT. An international leader in the field of pavement engineering, he has published extensively in the areas of pavement analysis and design, viscoelastic-viscoplastic constitutive modeling, and pavement material characterization and testing. Schwartz has led major research projects sponsored by the National Academies, the Federal Highway Administration, and other infrastructure agencies. He is an Associate Editor for the International Journal of Pavement Engineering and serves on several other journal editorial boards. Schwartz currently chairs national pavement-related committees for the Transportation Research Board of the National Academies and for the American Society of Civil Engineers. He also teaches undergraduate and graduate courses that span the areas of numerical analysis, pavement design and analysis, advanced soil mechanics, computational geomechanics (including pavement mechanics), and civil infrastructure systems.
