Asphalt Pavement Technical Briefing


Topics to be Presented:

Mix Type Specification under 2016 ODOT Specifications. Selecting the proper mix types for an asphalt pavement build-up is essential for best performance and economy. Different mix types are required for different load applications, layer thicknesses and position within the pavement build-up. The presentation will provide information regarding the mix types generally available, under the revised 2016 ODOT specifications, and guidance for their optimum application. 1 hour. 1 PDH.

Improving Asphalt Pavement Longitudinal Joint Performance. Longitudinal joints in asphalt pavements have often been a source of unsatisfactory performance, reducing the life of the pavement surface or requiring costly maintenance. The presentation will discuss the causes of this premature deterioration and the construction procedures required to ensure good performing longitudinal joints. 1 hour. 1 PDH.

Asphalt Pavement Maintenance and Rehabilitation. Adequate maintenance is essential to achieving the best long-term performance and lowest life-cycle cost of an asphalt pavement. This presentation covers the basics of selecting appropriate, timely and economical maintenance, including pavement preservation with thinlays and micro milling and rehabilitation treatments of asphalt pavements. The presentation references the latest research on the subject. 1 hour. 1 PDH.
