ASCE Hawaii Section (Steve Fong) 15th Annual Scholarship Golf Tournament @ Pearl County Club
Aug 4 @ 11:00 am – 8:00 pm

The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), the Hawaii Asphalt Paving Industry (HAPI) and the Cement and Concrete Products Industry (CCPI) are again jointly working together to put on the 2017 Golf Tournament in memory of a very special individual, Steve Fong. The first event was held in August 2003, making this the 15th anniversary of the tournament.

This year’s tournament is on Friday August 4, 2017 at the Pearl Country Club.  July 7th is the deadline for early bird registration; last day to register is July 21st.  Click here for additional details and entry form.

Steve Fong was an Engineer with the Federal Highway Administration, as well as a past President of CCPI, who passed away in March of 2002 after a long illness. Those of you who knew Steve, and had been exposed to the “Fong Treatment,” can relate to what this man was like and why he was so special. Steve would always test your knowledge and decision-making abilities, all in his hope of making better engineers, and most importantly, better people. Hawaii’s transportation engineers, governmental agencies, ASCE, HAPI and CCPI, continue to pay tribute to the memory of this Engineer, Steve Fong, by doing this special event.

The scholarship funds will be donated to the ASCE Student Chapter, which would assist in their efforts to raise awareness and engage more students into the engineering profession.

Thank you for your consideration.

Speaker: Jon M. Young, PE, Hawaii Asphalt Pavement Industry

Who Should Attend: Contractors, engineers, and construction managers unfamiliar with a JMF submittal.

The job mix formula (JMF) is the recommended mixture, which includes aggregate gradation and asphalt binder type, to meet the project specifications.

This 90-minute, plus questions and answers, workshop will discuss 1) the basics of asphalt pavement mixes, by discussion the Marshall method, which is the most widely used in Hawaii, 2) the production of asphalt pavements, and 3) how the JMF submittal relates to the project specification, using the Department of Transportation, 2005 Standard Specifications as an example.

– A basic understanding of asphalt pavement mixes
– A basic understanding of how asphalt pavements are produced
– An understanding of how to review the JMF submittal for conformance to a specification

Certificate Provided: 2.0 PDHs are available for attending this workshop.
