Title: Here is the Where the Rubber Hits the Road: Pavement Vehicle Interaction Re-examined

 

Pavement vehicle interaction (PVI) is a complex phenomenon that is gaining more traction in the world of pavements. Efforts in the past to improve fuel economy have commonly focused on vehicle aerodynamics, tires, and engines. Recently, efforts to improve fuel economy have begun focusing on the effects of different pavement properties on vehicular rolling resistance.

 

This webinar will provide you with :

  • A better understanding of how PVI affects the overall environmental impact of a pavement over its life-cycle
  • The current state of knowledge related to pavement properties and their effect on rolling resistance
  • Insight into the asphalt industry’s critique on some of the current rolling resistance research being conducted
  • 1 PDH will be offered for this webinar

 

People who should attend this webinar include: DOT stakeholders, general contractors and producers, Federal Highway Administration personnel, environmental managers/consultants, and academics

 

Speaker: Dr. Richard Willis, Lead Researcher, National Center for Asphalt Technology
