The National Center for Asphalt Technology at Auburn University has released a report that compares the performance and life-cycle cost benefits of stone matrix asphalt (SMA) to those of polymer-modified Superpave dense-graded mixtures used on similar trafficked highways.
Per NASEM TRB E-Newsletter:
The U.S. Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has released a report that analyzes the use of deflection-basin data to determine the in-place structural condition of asphalt concrete (AC) layers. Deflection basins are used to backcalculate the elasticlayer modulus of existing AC layers, which are considered input level 1 for rehabilitation designs.
TRB's National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Research Report 877: Performance-Based Mix Design for Porous Friction Courses presents a proposed mix design method for porous asphalt friction course (PFCs). PFCs have been used in the United States for many years. Their open aggregate gradations and resultant high air void contents...
The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) has released a report that summarizes the findings of the VDOT Asphalt Quality Task Force. This group was developed in 2011 to identify and recommend specific achievable measures to improve the quality of asphalt paving in Virginia.
The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration has released a report that evaluates a laboratory rutting performance of warm mix asphalt (WMA) versus hot mix asphalt (HMA). In many paving projects, WMA has replaced HMA as a means of reducing environmental impacts. This report seeks to develop guidance for using WMA for commercial airport pavements.
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.
