Airport Pavement Technical Workshop

Asphalt AcademyAirport Pavement Technical Workshop


This workshop provides the most up-to-date information for those designing, constructing and managing asphalt airport pavements. Focus is on current FAA and other applicable industry standards, including specifications, advisory circulars, criteria and policy. Topics covered include pavement design and evaluation, materials, mix design, construction, preservation and rehabilitation practices, along with innovative pavement technologies for airports.

The FAA released a new version of AC 150/5370 (-10H, from -10G) in December 2018. At the November 5-7, 2019 Airport Pavement Technical Workshop, we will take a detailed look at the changes to -10H, including those within item P-401. Learn what these changes mean for Engineers, Contractors and others!

Highlighted Topics:

  • FAA Thickness Design
  • Pavement Evaluation
  • Maintenance and Rehabilitation Methods
  • Materials and Construction
  • Quality Control and Assurance
  • P-401 Specifications, Marshall and Gyratory Mixes

Bring your Laptop. FAARFIELD is the FAA’s pavement thickness design software. Participants are encouraged to bring laptop computers with FAARFIELD pre-installed to be able to perform hands-on classroom examples during the workshop. The most recent version of FAARFIELD (version 1.42) is provided as part of the class materials. While encouraged, laptops are not a firm requirement as the instructor will be demonstrating the examples on a screen.

Who Should Attend:

The workshop is intended for airport managers and engineers, consultants, engineering personnel, testing laboratory personnel, construction inspectors, and others who have responsibility for airport pavement design, construction, maintenance and rehabilitation.
