Houston T&DI Webinar: Sustainable Pavements

May 19 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM CDT

Description

Please join the Houston Transportation & Development Institute Chapter for a unique presentation on Sustainable Pavements. Asphalt pavements are 100 percent recyclable. Asphalt pavement is the most recycled product in the world. To incorporate renewed in situ pavement practices, creative methods and acronyms were developed including FDR, RAP, and CCPR; or full depth reclamation, recycled asphalt pavement, and Cold Central Plant Recycling, respectively. In addition to discussing these sustainable practices, we will touch on material types, design technique, and construction tips to improve service life and reduce maintenance costs. The importance of yet another acronym VMA, or voids in mineral aggregates, in recycled asphalt will be outlined with effective maneuvers, both in the lab and field to achieve higher VMA. Unstable subgrades and varying quality of materials can wreak havoc on recycling projects. Therefore, we will equip you with mitigation methods for dealing with poor subgrades, combined with effective methods of in place density and appropriate compaction.
