TRB will conduct a webinar on Thursday, November 1, 2018 from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET that will discuss balanced/performance-engineered asphalt mixture design. Agencies have identified the integration of mechanical and performance tests with current volumetric design practice as an encouraging method for the production of longer-lasting asphalt pavements. Part I of this webinar series focuses on examining how agencies are approaching balanced/performance engineered mixture design, how well their efforts are moving forward, and the challenges they are facing on the path to implementation. Part 2 of the series will take place on Monday, November 26, 2018, and will focus on case studies of successful balanced/performance-engineered mixture designs.

This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committees on Nonasphalt Components of Asphalt Paving Mixtures, Structural Requirements of Asphalt Mixtures, and Surface Requirements of Asphalt Mixtures.

Some registrants will need to pay $95 to attend this webinarSign into to view registration information.
