TRB Webinar: Waterborne Traffic Paint Application, Materials Selection, and Testing March 26, 2019 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM U.S. Eastern 1.50 0.00 0.00 0.00

TRB will conduct a webinar on Tuesday, March 26, 2019, from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET that will discuss practices for applying pavement markings.  While pavement markings are a safety measure with a long history and broad use, there is a wide variety of practices, resulting in significant differences in paint quality from location to location. This webinar will present a case study of one state department of transportation that improved year-round maintained retroreflectivity of their waterborne traffic paint by focusing on quality and education. The presenters will also focus on materials testing for both paint and beads, and they will demonstrate how materials testing and selection processes may improve marking visibility.

This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committee on Signing and Marking Materials.

TRB Webinar: Evaluation of Superheavy Load Movement on Flexible Pavements April 23, 2019 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM U.S. Eastern 1.50 0.00 0.00 0.00

TRB will conduct a webinar on Tuesday, April 23, 2019, from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET that will examine procedures for analyzing the impacts of superheavy load (SHL) movement on flexible pavements developed under a U.S. Federal Highway Administration-sponsored research project*. SHL hauling units are much larger and heavier than standard trucks and may involve gross vehicle weights in excess of a few million pounds, which at times requires specialized trailers and components with nonstandard spacing between the tires and axles.

The presenters will discuss analysis methods -- such as subgrade bearing failure analysis, sloped pavement shoulder failure analysis, buried utility risk analysis, localized shear failure analysis, deflection-based service limit analysis, and cost allocation analysis -- to determine whether a pavement is structurally adequate to sustain SHL movement.  They also will describe the SuperPACK tool developed to conduct this analysis.

This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committee on Structural Requirements of Asphalt Mixtures; TRB Standing Committee on General and Emerging Pavement Design; TRB Standing Committee on Design and Rehabilitation of Asphalt Pavements; and TRB Standing Committee on Pavement Structural Modeling and Evaluation.
