Major Achievements

RTC HEWM has scientific cooperation with: Institute of Applied Physics of NAS of Belarus; Institute of Applied Physical Problems n.a. A.N. Sevchenko of Belarusian State University, Minsk, Belarus; Belarusian State Technological University, Minsk; SE "Belarusian Road Research Institute"; "Russian Road Research Institute" (Russia); "Derzhdorndi" Kiev (Ukraine); KhADU, Kharkov (Ukraine); NTU, Kiev (Ukraine); Beuth Hochschule für Technik (Berlin, Germany); Road and Bridge Research Institute (Instytut Badawczy Dróg i Mostów), Warsaw (Poland); Southeast University, Nanjing (China); Chang'an University, Xi'an (China); JSC "Problematika" (Vilnius, Lithuania).

Developments of the RTC HEWM are widely used in the reconstruction and major repair of streets in the cities of Minsk, Brest, Grodno, Vitebsk, Mogilev, Gomel, and a number of roads and motorways M1, M6, M5, on the territory of the Republic of Belarus, and the M4 "Don", M55 "Baikal" in Russia. In addition, developments are used in the operation and maintenance of roads of local importance in Henan prov­ince (China).

The Centre has modern equipment for testing road construction materials (asphalt, bitumen, mineral powder, gravel, etc.). There are special purpose devices, e.g.: georadar OKO-2, mechanical press Strassent­est, test system DTS 06-100. Software systems for structural analysis by finite element method MSC Marc and MSC Patran are purchased.
