Structure of the project

The ROSE project is structured into four research work packages WP1, WP2, WP3, and WP4. Each of these contribute to the overall aim of designing a new and improved generation of asphalt pavement.

The work packages exists as separate sub projects of the ROSE project but are connected due to work packages relying on results from other work packages. The interdependence between the work packages is listed below:

Deliverable from WP2 to WP1: Model of the laboratory setup (due April 1, 2017).

Deliverable from WP2 to WP3: Model of the molecular mechanics in asphalt mortar for use in the meso-scale characterization (due April 1, 2017).

Deliverable from WP1 and WP2 jointly to WP4: Model making it possible to predict the rolling resistance for a given surface texture (due January 1, 2018).

Deliverable from WP3 to WP4: Model predicting the surface texture and durability of a given asphalt mixture (due January 1, 2018).

Beside from this there is a fifth work packages WP5 describing the management of the project. This work package is responsible for the overall leadership and the dissemination of results from the ROSE project.

WP5 is also responsible for a planned EU Horizon 2020 application ultimo 2018 and is divided into project coordination, project leading and popular dissemination. Partners from AfterMath will be responsible of the project coordination, partners from Roskilde University will take care of project leading and popular dissemination.
