TRB Webinar: Pavement Design Role Reversal: Mixtures Before Design and Construction (w/ SCDOT Presentation)
TRB will conduct a webinar on Thursday, August 23, 2018 from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM ET that will illustrate case studies where asphalt mixtures were specifically designed to meet situations in which conventional design approaches were not appropriate. In conventional practice, the pavement is designed using a set of standard asphalt mixture properties, resulting in a structural pavement thickness to meet traffic, climate, and safety conditions. However, there are times when this approach yields poor pavement performance, such as when high-volume roads must be prematurely rehabilitated. This webinar will explore recent advancements in asphalt material modification, mixture design, and performance testing that now allow asphalt mixtures to be specifically formulated and produced to meet challenging pavement design and construction needs.
