TRB’s National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Report 752: Improved Mix Design, Evaluation, and Materials Management Practices for Hot Mix Asphalt with High Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement Content describes proposed revisions to the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) R 35, Superpave Volumetric Design for Hot Mix Asphalt, and AASHTO M 323, Superpave Volumetric Mix Design, to accommodate the design of asphalt mixtures with high reclaimed asphalt pavement contents.

This part of the webinar will highlight studies on field performance conducted by numerous state DOTs, the Federal Highway Administration and various pavement research organizations including the National Center for Asphalt Technology. The segment will also highlight the experiences of two pavement engineer veterans who will provide long-term perspectives of using RAP in asphalt mixtures from the Illinois DOT and the Florida DOT.

Civil and geotechnical engineers often specify asphalt for projects and but don’t always get the opportunity to learn about production of the product. This webinar will take attendees behind the scenes using drone video to explore the asphalt production process leading up to delivery on-site. Furthering this educational opportunity, engineers will learn about the construction process by watching asphalt placement and hearing tips to specify and design high-quality jobs presented by experienced asphalt experts.

Asphalt pavements are quick to construct, but this traditional wisdom has rarely been quantified — until recently. Using a case study, learn how researchers quantify speed of construction with user costs and local business impacts and learn also from a contractor on how asphalt’s speed of construction was a winning component to their bid. Agencies can gain a more holistic view of the total economic impact of a construction project. This analysis helps the agency make an informed decision surrounding the economic and construction costs associated with large pavement projects.
