Asphalt and aggregate companies offer a lot to our communities. Yet their contributions to modern society’s quality of life are not understood by the general public, and rarely communicated.

A Practical Approach to Managing Density

Date: Thursday, August 11, 2:00–3:00 p.m. EDT 

Speaker:  Todd Mansell, Training Consultant, Caterpillar Paving Products Inc.

 

Meeting and exceeding density specifications is critical to success on today's paving jobs. However, managing the rolling and compaction operation continues to be the most misunderstood aspect of the paving operation. Contractors often "chase density" without understanding and fixing the root cause(s) of why density is not being consistently achieved. It doesn't have to work this way.

 

In this session you will learn: 
1. How to establish and maintain an effective rolling pattern. 
2. Step-by-step ways to pinpoint the root cause(s) of not getting density on a job. 
3. How to practically manage the compaction operation in the face of unplanned events such as plant breakdowns, equipment breakdowns and trucking problems.
