National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) is an autonomous agency of the Government of India has signed Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with IIT-Kharagpur for research project on Laboratory and Field investigations on Paneled Cement Concrete Pavements for Highways. The duration of the research project is 3 years and NHAI have paid Rs. 1.25 crore for the project, excluding cost of construction of trial pavement section on NH.
In India, the highways are generally paved with Bituminous (Asphaltic Concrete) material produced from refineries. However, it has been experienced that these highways are prone to damage and need frequent maintenance due to adverse climatic conditions such as rain and hot weather prevailing in the country.
So let’s do:
1. Name the Institute, which has signed MOU with NHAI for research project on Laboratory and Field investigations on Paneled Cement Concrete Pavements for Highways?
