Specifying Asphalt Pavement Mixes (09/27/23) @ Zoom Presentation
Sep 27 @ 11:30 am – 12:30 pm

Title: Specifying Asphalt Pavement Mixes
Speaker: Jon M. Young, Hawaii Asphalt Paving Industry

It is important that the desired asphalt mix gets specified on the plans and in the specifications. This presentation reviews aggregate gradations and binders used in Hawaii and how they are shown in the plans and specifications.

Envision Rating System (10/04/23)

Intro to Stone Matrix Asphalt (10-11-23) @ Zoom Presentation
Oct 11 @ 11:30 am – 12:30 pm

Title: Intro to Stone Matrix Asphalt (SMA)
Speakers: Jon M. Young, Hawaii Asphalt Paving Industry

This session will introduce Stone Matrix Asphalt (SMA). SMA is a gap-graded hot mix asphalt (HMA) originally developed in Europe to maximize rutting resistance and durability. The mix design goal is to create stone-on-stone contact within the mixture. Since aggregates do not deform as much as asphalt binder under load, this stone-on-stone contact greatly reduces rutting.

Introduction to Balanced Mix Design (10/18/23) @ Zoom Presentation
Oct 18 @ 11:30 am – 12:30 pm

Title: Intro to Balanced Mix Design
Speaker: Jon M. Young, Hawaii Asphalt Pavement Industry

Balanced Mix Design (BMD) is coming soon to Hawaii. Working together, HDOT and HAPI, moving forward with the implementation.

BMD is an enhanced approach to designing asphalt paving mixtures to achieve a satisfactory balance between rutting resistance and crack resistance. It promises to result in longer lasting asphalt pavements.

This session will cover the basics of BMD and what’s happening in other states.

Pavement Technologies in Hawaii (10/25/23) @ Zoom Presentation
Oct 25 @ 11:30 am – 12:30 pm

Title: Pavement Technologies in Hawaii
Speaker: Jon M. Young, Hawaii Asphalt Pavement Industry

In recent years, HDOT Highways Division has added the use of PMA and SMA to the tool box of asphalt mixes. They are doing a project with mixes that use a plastic additive and mixes with 50% RAP.

Join us to learn more about these technologies and what HDOT has in store for the future.
