The Polytechnic University of Bari is involved since some years in an international research regarding the functional optimisation of porous friction courses and porous pavements in general. After years of research, a design method was developed concerning the water draining capacity of such pavements so to decrease accident risks while driving in wet conditions. Currently, the research is focused in the optimisation of the fuctional properties of such pavements as regard the enviromental aspects. This is in collaboration with the University of Florida at Gainesville , the ANAS Spa (Apulia Department) and Bari Municipality. A test site was built on a ANAS road in th District of Foggia (I) and another one is being built up in Bari. This research has also a branch regarding material that is carried in collaboration with the Technical University of Warsaw.
