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 – Materials Selection
Date: Wednesday, May 9, 2:00–3:30 p.m. EDT
Speaker: Brian Prowell, Principal Engineer, Advanced Materials Services and Ron Corun, Specialty Products Manager, Associated Asphalt

Material selection is critical in providing a quality solution at an economical price. Heavy duty pavements subjected to the same traffic/loading can differ in design and material makeup due to the environment in which they are placed, the local aggregates and pavement products available, and site subgrade conditions. The speaker(s) will discuss the impacts of different loading scenarios (presented by facilities such as ports, heavy freight corridor highways, truck and bus terminals, airports, and distribution centers) on material selection for heavy duty pavements.

Key Takeaways:

  • Aggregates
  • Mixture Types
  • Recycled Materials
  • Asphalt Binders

New AC Tank Inspection Standards Are Now in Effect
Date: Wednesday, May 16, 2:00–3:30 p.m. EDT
Speaker: Bernard Bigham, President, Chesapeake Environmental Group, Inc.

As part of EPA's Oil Spill Prevention Rule (SPCC), owners/operators of facilities with tanks containing petroleum liquids like fuel and asphalt cement (AC) must have a tank inspection program. One of the amendments to the rule requires periodic inspections and/or integrity testing of all AST's holding petroleum oil, including AC tanks. In 2016, EPA requested NAPA to work with the Steel Tank Institute (STI) to develop a consensus-based tank inspection standard for thermoplastic materials like AC which has now been incorporated into STI's SP-001 tank inspection standard and will be published in 2018.

Key Takeaways:

  • Review EPS's SPCC rule as it relates to tank inspections.
  • Recognize differences between NAPA's IS-137 and STI's SP-001 for inspection of AC tanks.
  • Understand the specific requirements associated with an AC tank inspection program under SP-001.
  • Identify how to set-up a compliant AC tank inspection program under the SPCC rule.

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
