The International Society for Concrete Pavements and EUPAVE have the pleasure of announcing a joint webinar on “Best Practices of Concrete Overlays in the U.S.”. The webinar will be held on 31 May 2017 from 15.30 to 17.00 (Brussels time).
Concrete overlays are sustainable solutions for resurfacing and rehabilitating existing pavements. Overlays have occasionally been used in some European countries, mainly those which are familiar with concrete pavements.
Throughout the U.S. concrete overlay solutions has increased dramatically in the past 25 years and has become a standard strategy to rehabilitate and preserve an existing roadway structure.
The objective of this webinar is to provide an overview of the types of concrete overlay options and when to apply them, existing methods to design concrete overlays, variations in construction procedures to build concrete overlays, and performance of thinner concrete overlays and lessons learned with experts from the U.S.
The webinar will include:
– a short introduction on “concrete overlays in Europe” by Luc Rens, Managing Director of EUPAVE, Consulting Engineer at FEBELCEM and Board Director of ISCP,
– an “introduction on overlay types, applications” by Dr. Jeffery Roesler, P.E. CEE Professor-University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and President of ISCP,
– a presentation of performance of thinner concrete overlays by Randy Riley, PE, Executive Director Illinois ACPA
– a presentation of concrete overlay experience in Minnesota by Tom Burnham, PE, Research Engineer Minnesota Department of Transportation and Board Director of ISCP
The registration is free for ISCP members and EUPAVE members and partners. Each member/partner can also invite up to two external participants. Free tickets are limited to 60 participants.
