This is a completely-updated and revamped course on in-place asphalt recycling, which will explore in more detail the most common recycling methods, while providing an insightful look on selecting the most appropriate method and stabilization strategy based on a project's and site's specific characteristics. The soil stabilization portion of the course will expand on Caltrans Highway Design Manual Chapter 614 by providing guidelines on the selection of an appropriate stabilization method, design of stabilized subgrade, and construction considerations. This is a must-take course for local pavement managers who are looking for a more cost-effective alternative to traditional pavement rehabilitation or reconstruction.

Topics Include

  • Overview of in-place recycling and it's benefits over traditional "remove-and-replace" rehabilitation strategies
  • Project assessment
  • Selecting the most appropriate in-place recycling approach based on the project assessment
  • Selecting a stabilization strategy
  • Mix design
  • Pavement design
  • Key construction issues and project specification considerations
  • Case studies, good and bad

What You Will Learn

By the end of this course, students will have a broad understanding of pavement rehabilitation using in-place recycling, how to assess a candidate project and select the most appropriate recycling method and stabilization strategy, how to do and evaluate mix and pavement designs, as well as key construction issues that need to be considered to ensure a successful, long-lasting pavement rehabilitation project.

Who Should Attend

This course is designed for all levels of pavement engineers and managers in state and local agencies who are interested in learning more about using in-place recycling as a cost-effective pavement rehabilitation option.
