Only a few open seats remain for ACPA’s comprehensive, three-day workshop covering best practices in airfield pavement design and construction.
Among the topics covered for this comprehensive workshop are specific sessions detailing the scope and intent of U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Federal Aviation Administration specifications used in the design and construction of concrete pavements for commercial, military, and general aviation airports.
“This is extremely important information for contractors, owners’ representatives, and others to know … and know well,” said Gary Mitchell, P.E., ACPA’s Vice President of Airports and Pavement Technology. “Best of all, this information will be presented by two highly respected individuals who have direct experience and a wealth of experience with P-501 and UFGS-32 13 11, the military Tri-Services spec.” Presenting this information will be Doug Johnson, P.E., from FAA headquarters’ Airport Engineering Division, and Jim Lafrenz, P.E., with Tigerbrain Engineering, Inc. In addition to Johnson and Lafrenz, other instructors will include: Martin Holt, Interstate Highway Construction (IHC); Tony Gerardi, APR Consultants; and Rich Thuma, P.E., M.ASCE, Crawford, Murphy, and Tilley, as well as ACPA’s Mitchell. Carlton Lambiasi, P.E., FAA Great Lakes Region, will also be presenting opening remarks.
The curriculum is well suited for contractors; airport owners and owners’ representatives; consultants/engineers; inspectors; military engineers; Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) personnel, and others with an interest in designing, constructing, and maintaining quality concrete pavements for commercial airports and military airfield applications.
Leading experts from the American Concrete Pavement Association, the Federal Aviation Administration, and other companies in the airport construction community will present information and lead open discussions.
In addition to providing comprehensive information about airport pavement design & construction, it will also cover various specifications (i.e., P-501, Unified Facilities Guide Specifications, etc.); advisory circulars; engineering briefs; and other resources. Specific topics covered in the workshop include foundation support, jointing, concrete mixtures, stockpiling, concrete plant management, acceptance criteria, smoothness, and much more.
