Los conductores prefieren el asfalto por la suavidad de conducción que ofrece.

La suavidad de conducción de una superficie de asfalto tiene ventajas tanto para los conductores como para los vehículos. Una superficie de carretera regular ayuda a reducir el consumo de combustible mediante la optimización de la resistencia a la rodadura de los neumáticos. También reduce el desgaste de los amortiguadores y de la suspensión, especialmente en los vehículos pesados de elevadas cargas por eje.

Increases in the European road freight transport, vehicles weight and frequency of extreme climatic events are deteriorating the European road network at an anomalously fast rate, bringing it close to the end of its service life and requiring more frequent maintenance operations. In this unfavourable scenario, road transport is also nowadays experiencing one of the greatest revolutions of its history, with the arrival of new users, such as the autonomous, electric and high-capacity vehicles, which will help mankind to fight Climate Change and increase road safety. However, all these new vehicles have also characteristics, which may reduce the durability of the road pavements. This third video of the EAPA Series “Generation Asphalt”, analyses the potential risks of the new mobility and how the asphalt industry is getting ready for the challenge.
