    100% Recycling – Cold Central Plant Recycling (CCPR) and Full-Depth Reclamation (FDR)

    Date:   Thursday, July 30, 2:30–3:30 p.m. EDT
    Speakers:  Don Matthews, Pavement Recycling Systems, Inc., and Kevin McGlumphy, Bituminous Technologies an Associated Asphalt Company

    Cold Central Plant Recycling (CCPR) has been successfully used to produce 100% RAP mixtures. CCPR provides an opportunity to effectively add new aggregate to the mix as well as uniformly adding new binder as necessary. FDR recycles the existing asphalt and base in-place removing existing distresses producing a treated base for a new pavement. This session will provide attendees with a thorough understanding of cold central plant recycling and full depth reclamation.

    Who Should Attend:  Contractors, Producers, Managers, and Operational Managers

    Audrey Copeland, Ph.D., P.E. NAPA Vice President Engineering, Research & Technology

    PaveXpress is a free, web-based tool, allows pavement engineers a simplified approach to creating and evaluating technically sound pavement structure designs, for both flexible and rigid pavements. Using AASHTO 93/98 methods, this tool allows you to design roadways, overlays, and parking lots in just minutes. The tool provides easy access of available resources for state specific design methods. PaveXpress is easy to use and understand and is accessible on multiple devices providing technically sound pavement structural design analysis. This webinar will cover the product from front to back and how it can be used in your organization.

     

    Key Takeaways:

    • Identify the target use scenario for your organization with PaveXpress
    • Understand the empirical pavement design approach used in PaveXpress (AASHTO 93/98)
    • Apply AASHTO 93 pavement evaluation guidelines to assess an existing pavement for an overlay
    • Access PaveXpress on your own and create your first pavement design

    A Practical Approach to Managing Density

    Date:   Tuesday, August 11, 2:30–3:30 p.m. EDT
    Speaker:  Todd Mansell, Civil Engineer, Caterpillar Global Paving Products

    Meeting and exceeding density specifications is critical to success on today's paving jobs. However, managing the rolling and compaction operation continutes 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.

    Who Should Attend:  Contractors, Producers, Managers, and Operational Managers

     

    Key Takeaways:

    • Understand the root causes of poor density
    • Learn how to meet density specifications successfully
    • Learn how to manage density consistently
