HAPI Lunch Meeting – July 2015 (Pearl County Club)

HAPI was honored to have Bob Humer, PE., Sr. Regional Engineer (for CA, AZ, NV, OR, WA and HI), Asphalt Institute as the guest speaker at our HAPI lunch meeting attended by about 40 members and invited guests. Since I started as executive director, this was the first meeting presentation that was highly technical in nature. The format was an open question and answer session that covered topics such as mixing and compaction temperatures, the effect of continued absorption on percent air voids, and asphalt cutbacks and emulsions.

Other guests were:
– Danny Gierhart, Regional Engineer, Asphalt Institute and his wife Shari
– Jason M. Dietz, Pavement & Materials Engineer, FHWA Resource Center Lakewood, Colorado
– Ross Sasamura, Director and Chief Engineer, Department of Facility Maintenance, City and County of Honolulu
– Tyler Sugihara, Chief, Road Maintenance Division, Department of Facility Maintenance, City and County of Honolulu
– Stan Katsura, Chief, Civil Division, Department of Design and Construction, City and County of Honolulu
– Clifford Lau, Chief, Facilities Division, Department of Design and Construction, City and County of Honolulu

We thank Bob for his time and for providing members and guests with with the wisdom of his experience of the asphalt paving industry.
