Dr. Raymond E. Robertson is the newest recipient of the Asphalt Institute (AI) Roll of Honor award.
Robertson is best known in the industry for his work with the Western Research Institute (WRI) in leading their asphalt research program from 1987 to 2009.
He served as chairman of the Petersen Asphalt Research Conference. The international conference advances knowledge of asphalt chemistry, physical properties and how their interactions affect the performance of asphalt applications throughout a life cycle.
Robertson authored and co-authored numerous technical papers for the Transportation Research Board and the Strategic Highway Research Program. His work on “TRB Circular C499, Chemical Properties of Asphalts and Their Effects on Pavement Performance” successfully summarized 20 years of research on rheological properties of asphalt.
