CONCRETE PAVEMENT DESIGN SEMINAR

Sponsored by

Cement & Concrete Products Industry of Hawaii (CCPI)

and the

Hawaii Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP)

in cooperation with the

Hawaii State Department of Transportation

University of Hawaii’s Department of Civil Engineering

and the

Federal Highway Administration

DESCRIPTION:

In 1993, AASHTO released a new guide for Design of Pavement Structures. The Guide presents design technology for new pavements and pavement rehabilitation methods such as overlays.

Recently, the ACPA has updated its Pavement Analysis Software (PAS) to a Windows version (WINPAS), which also reflects the changes in the 1993 Guide. In addition to the AASHTO design procedures, this seminar will present information on the PCA Design Procedures for new pavements and pavement rehabilitation using concrete overlays.

Each participant will have access to a computer for hands-on training using the CD ROM design programs.

Program:

Target Audience:

Professional and technical staff engineers of FHWA, State DOT (Highways, Airports, Harbors), and County transportation agencies. Structural, civil, and geotechnical engineers (private sector) and contractors involved in the understanding of pavement designs.

Instructor:

James Mack, P.E.

Mr. Mack has been with American Concrete Pavement Association since 1991. He is currently serving as the Director of Engineering, Education, and Product Development. His primary duties include the development of ACPA’s Education and Training program and ACPA’s positions on pavement investment strategies (life cycle cost analysis, asset management, and innovative project financing).

Prior to this position, Mr. Mack was Director of Engineering and Rehabilitation where his primary duties included the development and production of technical literature and tools for concrete pavement design and rehabilitation. (i.e. Whitetopping, ultra-thin whitetopping (UTW), diamond grinding, etc.)

Mr. Mack is an honors graduate from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with both his B.S. and M.S. in Transportation Materials and Design. While at Illinois, Mr. Mack received the William John Mackay Award for High Academics and Ethical Standards and the Charles E. DeLeuw Travel Award for the Outstanding Student in Transportation Engineering.
