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. The four-part series begins on October 31st with a discussion on 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. The series then continues on successive Thursdays with discussions in Parts 2, 3, and 4 on the effects that design (thickness design and mix design), production/construction, and preservation all have on building and maintaining a durable asphalt pavement.
