Abstract of the study results of Alexander Lubach, M.Eng.

Within the framework of his master’s thesis submitted to the “Beuth Hochschule für Technik”, Berlin, Alexander Lubach, M.Eng., carried out a study on the sustainability of heavy-duty mastic asphalt wearing courses on federal trunk roads. The main objective of the thesis on this topic was to assess the sustainability of mastic asphalt wearing courses and to substantiate their durability, thus establishing the basis for a well-founded line of arguments in favour of mastic asphalt wearing courses on federal trunk roads.

The results of this study have been collected in a summary, which is available for download below.
