ACPA Focuses on Outreach and Training at World of Concrete

ACPA’s annual participation in the World of Concrete earlier this month focused on education and outreach, with PavementDesigner.org taking center stage.  ACPA’s Jerry Voigt and Bill Davenport presented a market overview and also discussed other initiatives (including PavementDesigner.org) at a well-attended press conference. 

Voigt also presented an industry training course on “Constructing Smooth Concrete Pavements,” a three-hour course that extended well past its allotted time because of an extensive question & answer exchange.  Eric Ferrebee presented also presented an industry training course, “Using New Online Thickness Design Software,” which generated good discussions and questions.

The event also gave ACPA the staff to visit with hundreds of booth visitors and members.  Visitors were treated to a PavementDesigner.org phone “kickstand,” as well as a wide range of technical literature and other support materials.

ACPA Offers Course on Using New Online Thickness Design Software

World of Concrete Exclusive: Designing Concrete Pavements Using New Online Thickness Design Software

Course Code: ACPATH
Date/Time: Thursday, January 25 | 9:00 am – 12:30 pm
Location: LVCC North Hall
Register online and select courses prior to checkout.  (You can also select courses if you’ve previously registered.)  

Overview
This comprehensive training session is presented by industry pavement design experts. The concrete pavement industry has prepared a new, free online design software unifying the entire spectrum of industry pavement thickness design methods for the many different applications of concrete pavements and overlays. Jointed, reinforced, CRC, RCC, full-depth reclamation, as well as bonded and unbonded overlays will be covered. Roadways, streets, industrial, heavy-load and parking area applications will be covered.

Who Should Attend?
This training is a must for anyone wanting to learn how to use the new online software to design pavements. Project and construction managers, estimators, and quality managers, as well as civil, geotechnical and pavement engineers will learn about this new software. The training is also well-suited to agencies and owners, architects/designers, building managers, facilities managers, and others interested in knowing more about how to design pavements.

Course Outline
The 3.5-hour training course will feature three modules, including:

  • Introduction to Design—basics of pavement thickness design and different factors needed as inputs to the design method.
  • Designing Pavements using the free online Software—step-by-step approach to using the software for different applications; instructors will use multiple example problems from various markets.
  • Discussion and Open Q&A —interactive session allowing time for specific design questions and answers as well as discussion of specific issues and key topics.

Want to save more? 
The fee for this program is $160, but you can save morewhen purchasing two or more ACPA Pavement sessions! Click here to see our  other industry course offerings on Monday and Wednesday and Wednesday at WOC 2018.   Register for World of Concrete today

ACPA Offers RCC Pavement Training

World of Concrete Exclusive: ACPA Offers Course on Achieving High Quality Roller Compacted Concrete


Course Code: ACPAWE
Date/Time: Wednesday, January 24 | 9:00 am – 12:30 pm
Location: LVCC North Hall
Register online and select courses prior to checkout.  (You can also select courses if you’ve previously registered.)  

Overview
This comprehensive training session is presented by some of the foremost experts in Roller Compacted Concrete (RCC) paving. Often referred to as the “third pavement material,” RCC has many features and benefits, but also requires a different approach to design, construction, and repair for low-volume streets, highway shoulders, industrial applications, and military facilities. Specific RCC projects, issues and key points will be addressed.

Who Should Attend?
This training is a must for small and large contractors, including those with and without RCC paving experience. Project and construction managers, estimators, equipment managers and quality managers, as well as civil, geotechnical and pavement engineers will learn about this new pavement type. The training is also well-suited to agencies and owners, architects/designers, building managers, facilities managers, and others interested in knowing more about how RCC pavements can be used.

Course Outline
This 3.5-hour training course will feature three modules, including:

  • Introduction to RCC—history of RCC, basic RCC paving process, features/benefits & market applications.
  • Quality RCC Construction—basics of design, available construction methods, preparing a mixture design, handling materials, subgrade preparation, equipment selection, placement, jointing and curing. 
  • Troubleshooting RCC—common problems with RCC pavements, how to recognize defects and deficiencies,
    and how to prevent and repair problems

The program also will allow time for questions and answers, as well as discussion of specific RCC project specifics, issues and other key points.

Want to save more? 
The fee for this course is $160, but you can save more when purchasing two or more ACPA Pavement sessions! Click here to see our  other industry course offerings on Monday and Thursday at WOC 2018.   Two courses = $280 ($40 savings);  all three courses= $400 ($80 savings).
