Pavement foundation deformation under asphalt or concrete surface layers cause damage at the surface and reduce service life. Extreme weather and seasonal climate change create additional uncertainty, making it difficult to estimate and reduce foundation degradation and deformation for life cycle assessment periods up to 100 years. TRB will host a webinar on Thursday, May 30, 2024 from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM Eastern that will provide examples of current technology that is enhancing highway resilience and improving long term performance by reducing pavement foundation deformation.
This webinar features research from NCHRP Research Report 933: Evaluating Mechanical Properties of Earth Material During Intelligent Compaction.
This webinar is a follow-on to the 2024 TRB  Annual Meeting Workshop 1058: Pavement Foundations: 100-Year Design Considerations.
This webinar is sponsored by TRB’s National Cooperative Highway Research Program and the Standing Technical Committees on Mechanics and Drainage of Saturated and Unsaturated Geomaterials, Transportation Earthworks, and Stabilization of Geomaterials and Recycled Materials.
Registration is free for employees of TRB sponsors as well as Titanium and Cobalt Global Affiliates. The registration rate for all other attendees is $100. Sign into to view registration information. Contact Patrice Davenport to inquire about becoming a TRB sponsor or global affiliate organization.
A recording will be sent to all registrants after the webinar.
Webinar agenda and presenters

  • Design and construction to achieve long-lasting pavement – Nayyar Siddiki & Kumar Dave, Indiana Department of Transportation
  • Role of quality management in extending pavement life – Soheil Nazarian, University of Texas, El Paso
  • E-compaction for pavement foundations – David White, Ingios
  • Question and answer session moderated by John Siekmeier, Affiliation

The first 60 minutes of the webinar will be for presentations and the final 30 minutes will be reserved for audience questions.
Learning Objectives
At the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Understand how extreme weather and seasonal climate change create uncertainty during pavement system design
  • Avoid poor design choices and expensive or ineffective pavement system design
  • Reduce pavement foundation degradation and deformation for life cycle assessment periods up to 100 years

Professional Development Hours
Professional engineers (PEs) who register and attend the entire webinar as an individual will be awarded 1.5 Professional Development Hours (PDHs). TRB’s webinar program awards PDH credits only to the registered individual, and not to other members of a group that view the webinar together. To be eligible for the credits, individuals must remain signed in for the entire webinar, including for any question and answer session following the presentations.
This webinar will be delivered as a scheduled – e-learning live event and is categorized within RCEP as Technical, Health and Safety.
Please check with your licensing board to ensure that TRB webinar PDHs are approved by your board.
TRB will report credits earned to the Registered Continuing Education Program (RCEP). Complaints about registered providers may be sent to RCEP, 1015 15th Street, NW, 8th Floor, Washington, D.C., 20005.
Pre-registration is required. Once the webinar starts, you will be unable to register. Individuals that are registered for a webinar but do not receive their confirmation emails due to their organization’s internal firewalls should contact TRB Helpdesk for assistance in signing in.
