Asphalt Paving in Private Market Applications: Design of Commercial Asphalt Pavements
Wednesday, May 05, 2021
2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
Eastern Standard Time
Speaker: Scott Sounart, P.E., Pavement Engineering Associate, Kimley-Horn
Date: May 5, 2021 2:00 - 3:30 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)
Description: Please join us for a unique presentation on asphalt parking lot pavements. Parking lot pavements have significant differences than traditional roadway pavements. Material types, mix design technique, and construction practices will be discussed to improve service life and reduce maintenance costs. Asphalt mix designs are extremely important for low volume, parking lot mixtures. The importance of sufficient voids in mineral aggregates, or VMA will be outlined with effective maneuvers, both in the lab and field to achieve higher VMA. With larger area footprints, unstable subgrades are common during construction of parking lot pavements. Therefore, we will equip you with mitigation methods for dealing with poor subgrades, combined with effective methods of in place density and appropriate compaction.
Top 3 takeaways for participants:
- Parking lot pavements are NOT the same as roadway pavements
- Key factors affecting service life of a parking lot pavement
- VMA of an asphalt mixture is the most important parameter to monitor
