Research Summary: Lowering Vehicle Fuel Consumption and Emissions Through Better Pavement Design and Maintenance

October 27, 2016

Pavement-vehicle interaction (PVI) describes the interaction between a vehicle’s tires and the roadway surface it is driving on. Our team has developed models that quantify excess fuel consumption due to pavement-vehicle interaction for pavement segments and pavement networks. This summary presents our research on this topic as of the date of publication in October 2016.
