What makes an asphalt pavement a durable asphalt pavement? The answer to this question really is a combination of factors – all of which can contribute to success or early failure. The purpose of AAPT’s 2019 Fall Webinar Series is to provide the attendee with a holistic understanding of the various factors that can impact the durability of an asphalt pavement from the selection of materials and pre-construction decisions to preservation of the pavement after it has been built and opened to traffic.
Shane Buchanan (20-year AAPT Member) has prepared a brief introduction on asphalt durability – only 8 slides, but a great set-up for the 4-part series. We suggest that you take a few minutes and review these before starting the series: AAPT Durable Asphalt Pavements Webinar Series Introduction – Buchanan
Durable Asphalt Pavements – Part 1: Materials October 31, 2019 (11:00 am CT, approximately 60-75 minutes)
Brian Prowell, Advanced Materials Services LLC
Bob McGennis, HollyFrontier Refining & Marketing LLC
The first webinar in AAPT’s Fall 2019 webinar series, “Durable Asphalt Pavements,” will begin with a discussion of how materials – specifically the properties of aggregates and asphalt binder – can impact the durability of an asphalt mixture in service in positive and negative ways.
Durable Asphalt Pavements – Part 2: Design November 7, 2019 (11:00 am CT, approximately 60-75 minutes)
Richard Willis, National Asphalt Pavement Association
Don Christensen, Advanced Asphalt Technologies LLC
Part 2 of the series will focus on how thickness design, designing Perpetual Pavements, and proper mix design work in conjunction with good materials to provide a great start on the path to becoming a durable asphalt pavement.
Durable Asphalt Pavements – Part 3: Production and Construction November 14, 2019 (11:00 am CT, approximately 75-90 minutes)
Erv Dukatz, Mathy Construction
Becky McDaniel, North Central Superpave Center – Purdue University
Tim Aschenbrener, Federal Highway Administration
Part 3 of the series will focus on production and construction, understanding that great materials and proper design practices may not matter if the asphalt mixture is not properly produced and constructed.
Durable Asphalt Pavements – Part 4: Preservation November 21, 2019 (11:00 am CT, approximately 60-75 minutes)
Judith Corley-Lay, National Center for Pavement Preservation
Greg Harder, Asphalt Institute
The final part of the 2019 webinar series ends with a discussion about the important role preservation plays in assisting the well-designed, well-constructed asphalt pavement in achieving the distinction of being called a durable asphalt pavement.
