Iowa State engineers work with Iowa DOT to scale up tests of heated pavement

By Mike Krapfl, Iowa State University News Service

Iowa State engineers are working with the Iowa Department of Transportation to test heated-pavement technology developed on campus. The test slabs at the Iowa DOT are smarter and more complex than the research group’s previous tests at the Des Moines International Airport. And so far, preliminary tests indicate the system works well — even in this winter’s subzero temperatures.
