The Canterbury Accelerated Pavement Testing Indoor Facility (CAPTIF) Road Research Centre carries out accelerated road pavement testing.
The facility tests different types of pavement and surfacing under a revolving, loaded dual-tyred truck wheel that closely replicates actual road conditions.
CAPTIF works to:
- identify the impact of different vehicle types on pavements
- undertake research projects into the use of different materials, environmental conditions, and construction and maintenance techniques in road pavements.
