October 7, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm| Free
Part 1: Recycled Asphalt Pavements (RAP) Part 1: The What, Why, and How of RAP, Wednesday, September 16
Utilization of RAP provides for favorable economic, environmental and greenhouse gas emissions and societal impacts. In this webinar, attendees will learn about historical RAP use, recognize the need for and advantages of RAP use, understand the types of RAP products and how they differ, learn the leading practices for processing and stockpile management, and understand RAP product variability compared to virgin aggregate and overall mix variability.
Part 2: Recycled Asphalt Pavements (RAP) Part 2: Mix Design and Laboratory Performance Testing Wednesday, October 7
Asphalt mixtures containing RAP, when designed utilizing proper design principles and produced in consideration of production constraints have demonstrated excellent performance. This part of the webinar will focus on mix designs utilizing RAP, the level of mix design analysis needed as RAP percentages increase, the production variables to consider as RAP percentages increase and performance testing of asphalt mixes containing RAP.
Part 3: Recycled Asphalt Pavements (RAP) Part 3: Field Performance and the User Experience, Wednesday, October 28
This part of the webinar will highlight studies on field performance conducted by numerous state DOTs, the Federal Highway Administration, and various pavement research organizations including the National Center for Asphalt Technology. The segment will also highlight the experiences of two pavement engineer veterans who will provide long-term perspectives of using RAP in asphalt mixtures from the Illinois DOT and the Florida DOT.
