Sean Coffey is working on two research projects, however his primary project is a UTRC and NJDOT funded project, “Correlation between Multiple Stress Creep Recovery (MSCR) Results and Polymer Modification of Binder”. The purpose of the project is to develop new specifications for polymer binder modified binders for the state of New Jersey. Towards this goal, Sean Coffey is conducting extensive testing of hot mix asphalt consisting of broad range of polymer and non-polymer modified binders. In addition he is developing a comprehensive database for the New Jersey Department of Transportation. The database will have the capability to query broad range of binders based on the chemical composition, mechanical properties of the binder and mechanical properties of the hot mix asphalt. Sean Coffey is also working on a research project to analyze and predict performance of new construction in the state of Rhode Island using the Mechanistic Empirical Design Guide. In addition, Sean is an active member of American Society of Civil Engineers Rowan University Chapter and the Engineers without Borders at Rowan University.
