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.

This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committees on Structural Requirements of Asphalt Mixtures, Non-Binder Components of Asphalt Mixtures, and Design and Rehabilitation of Asphalt Pavements.

  • Robert Blight, New Jersey Department of Transportation
  • Jay Thompson, South Carolina Department of Transportation
  • John Harvey, University of California at Davis

Moderated by:  Kevin Hall, University of Arkansas

Webinar Outline

  1. Introduction and institutional hurdles
  2. New Jersey case study: Specialty asphalt mixture for PCC pavement rehabilitation
  3. South Carolina case study: Innovative asphalt mixture design for high-traffic pavements that are failing
  4. California case study: Long-life pavement initiative
  5. Question and answer session

The first 90 minutes of the webinar will be for presentations and the final 30 minutes will be reserved for audience questions. The Registered Continuing Education Program (RCEP) categorizes this webinar activity as relating to health, safety, and welfare including core technical.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the concepts of engineering mixtures to meet specific pavement design problems
  • Identify how states have carried out an engineered mixture solution and explain using specific examples
  • Discuss the distinctive differences between engineered mixture solutions and the conventional design process

Professional Development Hour Information

A certificate for 2.0 Professional Development Hours (PDHs) will be provided to Professional Engineers (PEs) who register and attend the webinar as an individual. For groups, only the person that registers and attends the session will receive a PDH certificate. Certificates of Completion will be issued only to individuals who register for and attend the entire webinar session.

Individuals registered as Florida PEs are no longer required to email TRB with your license number to report your attendance. Instead, please use your certificate that TRB provides through as verification of your attendance to the Florida Board of Professional Engineers.

Please check with your licensing board to ensure that TRB webinar PDHs are approved by your board.

This webinar was developed in March 2018. TRB has met the standards and requirements of the Registered Continuing Education Program (RCEP). Credit earned on completion of this program will be reported to RCEP by TRB. Complaints about registered providers may be sent to RCEP, 1015 15th Street, NW, 8th Floor, Washington, DC 20005.
