2018 Winter Conference and Trade Show Sessions

(1 pdh possible)

Title: Improve the Life of Your Pavements Using Asphalt Interlayers with your Rehabilitation or Reconstruction Designs

Presenter: Nicholas Reck, MSC.Eng, Pr.Eng/ Director of Road Maintenance Tensar, US
Description: An overview of the 5 type of interlayers, the 3 functions of interlayers, as defined by FHW, how they are selected for specific functions and distress types, installation best practice, product selection, performing design by function and distress type and developing project specifications and examples of typical applications.


Title: Advances in CIPP (Cured In Place Pipelining) Technology focusing on UV Cured Fiberglass NO-DIG Pipe Lining Systems

Presenter: Mike Ralbovsky, The Precision Group
Description: We demonstrate a safe, strong, and fast method of repairing culverts without the need to dig up the highway.
SAFE….VT AOT tested our system for styrene in the air, soil & water and the results were part per Billion
STRONG…over 2MILLION PSI FLEX Modulus
NYS DOT Approved
FAST…in most cases we curve the culvert with UV light at a rate of over 250’ per hour 


Title: Full Depth Reclamation

Presenters: Developed by Edward Denehy, P.E. and delivered by Todd Konifka and Fred Wickham, Technical Sales Representatives of the Gorman Group
Description: Municipalities in New York have long been faced with deteriorating road and pavement conditions on their secondary, low volume roads. One widely used technique to rehabilitate lower volume roads is Full Depth Reclamation (FDR). FDR is a pavement rehabilitation process that pulverizes and reuses the existing pavement and sub-base materials to produce a structurally strong pavement base course. FDR will be described and explained and its applicability to existing conditions will also be explored.


Title: Changing Conditions in the Oil Industry & Its Impacts on the Paving Industry

Presenter: Former EXXON Executive Frank Cawkell, Suit-Kote Corp
Description: The oil industry supply/demand profile is changing, from crude oil quality and sourcing, to oil product production and demand. This is already having an impact on asphalt cement availability and this in term translates into the paving industry, one of the primary users of asphalt cement. In this presentation, we will discuss the trends that are occurring in supply and demand across the oil value chain, from crude oil, refined products and end user industries. We will then discuss what impact this may have in the paving industry.


Title: We Are All Responsible for Good Roads: An Engineering Review of Good Ideas

Presenter: David P. Orr, PE Cornell Local Roads Program 
Description: Review of what makes good roads from state highways to the lowest volume local road. The session will:
Review what makes a good road
Explain the total costs of a highway for the users
Identify low cost solutions applicable for all highways
