FHWA Compaction Workshop

Type: 
Workshop
Hours: 
8

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA)

and Asphalt Institute present an Enhanced

Durability through Increased In-Place

Pavement Density Workshop. This one-day

workshop offers owners and contractors the

opportunity to learn about the dramatic

durability increases that can be realized from

relatively small increases in in-place densities.

This workshop provides the most current

information on how to achieve consistently

high densities and the resulting economic

benefits.

TOPICS INCLUDE:

• The Importance of Density

• Influencers on Durability

• Construction Best Practices

• Newer Technologies

o Intelligent Compaction

o Pave IR

o Warm Mix Asphalt

• Tack Coat Best Practices

• Longitudinal Joint Best Practices

OUTCOMES

At the conclusion of the workshop,

participants will be able to:

• Understand the benefits from increasing in place

density.

• Recognize strategies that could be

employed by contractors to improve their

achievement of density.

• Understand the economic benefits of

higher in-place density.
