The material testing laboratory for road construction of the Institute of Highway Engineering Aachen at the RWTH Aachen University represents an interface between practice, teaching and research.

Due to the long-time recognition by RAP Stra and as a concret testing centre W according to DIN 1045, the practical experiences of each individual area in the field of traffic area construction are directly incorporated into activities of teaching and research.

In addition, recent findings and developments from research and committee work can be directly implemented in practice and will be tested comprehensively.

The main fields of activities are quality control, quality assurance during the construction of traffic areas, scientific and constructional monitoring of pilot projects, suitability tests and advanced suitability tests, control tests, arbitration tests as well as failure analysis.
