We are thrilled to announce that Cooper Research Technology is a proud sponsor of the 8th International Conference on Bituminous Mixtures and Pavements (8th ICONFBMP) . This prestigious event will be held in the beautiful city of Thessaloniki, Greece, from Wednesday, June 12th to Friday, June 14th, 2024 at the luxurious Hyatt Regency Hotel.

As a leading provider of innovative testing equipment and solutions for the construction and materials testing industries, we are excited to participate in this significant conference. This event brings together professionals, researchers, and industry experts from around the globe to discuss the latest advancements, technologies, and research in the field of bituminous mixtures and pavement engineering.

During the three-day conference, there will be an exhibition area where we will be showcasing SHEAR1 – Uniaxial Shear Tester. We invite you to visit our booth to see live demonstrations and learn more about how our SHEAR1 tester.

SHEAR1 is capable of measuring the shear properties of asphalt mixtures, and may be utilised to determine asphalt mixture resistance to permanent deformations, calculate pavement rutting, optimise mix design, and perform pavement quality checks. Furthermore, SHEAR1 can be used to check the quality of asphalt mixtures from cores taken directly from pavement structures. SHEAR1 is an alternative to a Superpave Shear Tester (SST) and to perform pavement materials quality checks. SHEAR1 is a significantly less expensive and simpler than an SST yet produces results highly correlated to AASHTO T320-07.

We look forward to seeing you at the 8th International Conference on Bituminous Mixtures and Pavements. Together, let’s pave the way for future innovations and advancements in our industry.
