Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) is the main civil engineering material in paving construction. More than 90% of roads and highways in North America are paved with HMA; therefore, many civil engineers work in the design, production, and construction of HMA. A successful design, production, and construction of HMA needs significant knowledge, experience, and engineering judgement.
During the last decade, several developments in the asphalt mix industry have occurred. The most important developments in the design and testing of HMA include a new grading system for asphalt cement (Performance Grade- PG) as well a new mix design method (Superpave). Although many agencies use these new methods, other agencies use the traditional design and testing methods or a combination of new and old systems. It is critical that HMA users, producers, and pavement engineers and technologists to learn and understand the traditional characterization methods as well as the recent developments in this area.
The main objective of this workshop is to provide participants with a fundamental understanding of HMA as well as of the traditional and new developments in HMA design and testing.
The workshop is intended for all engineers and technologists who work in the design, production, and quality control/assurance of HMA. This course is an excellent opportunity for those wishing to develop their knowledge on the latest technology in the area of HMA.
