Date: Wednesday, August 23, 2:00–3:30 p.m. EST
Speaker: Dale Decker, Dale S. Decker, LLC

A strong layered pavement system owes much to the bond between layers, and a good tack coat allows two independent pavement layers to act as a single unit. This webinar will outline what materials are available for tack coats, as well as how to recognize and avoid common distresses and problems associated with improper tacking. Participants will also learn how to differentiate between acceptable and poor tack coats.

Understanding a Job Mix Formula Submittal Workshop @ HAPI Office
Sep 7 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Click here to register

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. The JMF submittal is prepared by the paving contractor for any project that requires the construction of an asphalt pavement. The submittal is typically reviewed by the engineer of record.

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.

Takeaways:
– 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.
Parking: Parking in back of the HAPI office building or on-street parking (coin-meter) for $0.75 per hour.

Click Here to Register

Date: Thursday, September 28, 2:00–3:30 p.m. EST
Speaker: Dr. Kevin Hall, Ph.D., P.E.,  University of Arkansas

Flexible pavement design has undergone numerous changes since the AASHO Road Test a half-century ago. This webinar will detail how flexible pavements work to carry traffic and how this impacts design considerations. Some details on mechanistic-empirical design will be covered, too, but the primary purpose of this webinar is to provide a basic understanding of the AASHTO 93 Design Guide and how to apply it.

Key Takeaways:

  • Identify and describe key factors considered in structural pavement design;
  • Select appropriate input values and perform calculations necessary to estimate required pavement thickness using current AASHTO procedures;
  • Optimize thickness design to produce the most cost-effective pavement structure;
  • Discuss general design principles of mechanistic-empirical pavement design.
