Where the rubber meets the road

"Why Chemomechanical Design of Materials is Critical to Sustainable Transportation Infrastructure" with Krystyn Van Vliet


Our conversations on sustainable transportation typically begin with a review of vehicle efficiencies, and end with the characteristics of fuel, energy sources, and life cycle. In a remarkably novel approach to sustainable transportation, Krystyn Van Vliet discusses how other things matter too — namely the materials we build our bridges from, the infrastructure of the road, and of course, the tires we drive on. They are all parts of the sustainable equation.
