NAPA Webinars

New-NAPA-Talks-Webinars-WebNAPA offers a variety of webinars throughout the year on various topics related to the asphalt industry. These topics range from newly released industry regulations to innovative processes and technology that can benefit your company. The NAPA webinar program will deliver the information you need to the comfort of your home or office.

Professional Development Hours (PDHs)Participation in NAPA webinars may earn you Professional Development Hours (PDHs). PDHs are educational units used to fulfill continuing education requirements for licensure or certification. In most cases, 1 hour of participation in a webinar equals 1 PDH. Some states and certifying bodies require pre-approval of professional development hours and documentation requirements also vary, so be sure to check with your appropriate agency. You are responsible for maintaining the documentation for your PDHs. You can request a certificate of completion after you attend any of the webinars to keep for your records. 

UPCOMING WEBINARS

Performance Under Pressure: Heavy Duty Pavements – Perpetual Pavements
Date: Wednesday, May 30, 2:00–3:30 p.m. EDT
Speaker: Dr. David H. Timm, P.E., Professor of Civil Engineering, Auburn University

Pavements subject to extreme loading conditions can require increased pavement thicknesses. With the requirement for thicker cross section pavements, heavy duty pavements often are great candidates for employing a perpetual pavement or a long life pavement design. A perpetual pavement design solution can also provide an attractive solution for heavy duty pavements due to the increased service life in critical corridors where user delay is costly.  Key Takeaways:

  • Fundamentals of perpetual pavement design
  • Design tools for perpetual pavements
  • Real-world examples of perpetual pavements

Performance Under Pressure: Heavy Duty Pavements – Performance Testing
Date: Monday, June 11, 2:00–3:30 p.m. EDT
Speaker: Imad L. Al-Qadi Ph.D., P.E., Dist.M.ASCE, Bliss Professor of Engineering and Director of Illinois Center for Transportation, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

There have been recent efforts to focus on a balanced mix design approach to pavement material selection and composition. A number of laboratory testing protocols have been developed and can be used to create mixture designs that will provide the performance needed for specific projects. This performance-focused effort differs from the past methodology of recipe-driven design requirements, lending itself well to projects that require heavy duty pavement solutions. The webinar will discuss how performance test requirement criteria can be tailored for different heavy duty pavement facilities.


  Key Takeaways:

  • Permanent Deformation
  • Cracking (Cold Weather and Fatigue)
  • Field Testing
