Are you having difficulty meeting volumetric and density specifications?
Are you tired of paying project penalties based on volumetrics?
The Bailey Method of Gradation Selection is a valuable asset and resource for your business.

This introductory one-day course will focus on the practical “day to day” aspects of the Bailey Method. The Bailey Method and its four principles will be introduced to understand how aggregate properties affect aggregate packing, which in turn controls volumetrics and compactibility. The Bailey Method applies to coarse-graded, fine-graded and SMA mixtures both nationally and internationally, and can help explain why some Superpave mixes are difficult to compact. It also provides insight as to why small gradation changes, which often occur during production and are within allowable tolerances, can cause significant changes to mixture volumetric properties and/or field compactability. This course is designed for individuals with mix design or quality control experience that want to learn how to design and control HMA mixes to optimize volumetrics and field compactability. Participants will receive a course manual and CD containing analysis software and reference material.
