Research Interests

While the topics of research studies conducted by Dr. Dave have ranged from laboratory performance tests for asphalt concrete to evaluation of patching materials for pavement repair and use of fracture mechanics to design long-lasting overlays, the central theme of the research has always been on the use of performance-based evaluation and design techniques to prolong the life of pavements in an economical manner.

  • Performance-based design and specifications
  • Laboratory and field performance testing and modelling
  • Life cycle assessment of pavement infrastructure
  • Fracture testing and modelling of infrastructure materials
  • Resilient transportation infrastructure
