NAPA offers a variety of webinars throughout the year on various topics related to the asphalt industry. These topics range from newly released industry regulations to innovative processes and technology that can benefit your company.
 
TRB will conduct a webinar on Thursday, November 1, 2018 from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET that will discuss balanced/performance-engineered asphalt mixture design. Agencies have identified the integration of mechanical and performance tests with current volumetric design practice as an encouraging method for the production of longer-lasting asphalt pavements. Part I of this webinar series focuses on examining how agencies are approaching balanced/performance engineered mixture design, how well their efforts are moving forward, and the challenges they are facing on the path to implementation. Part 2 of the series will take place on Monday, November 26, 2018, and will focus on case studies of successful balanced/performance-engineered mixture designs.
