There are many strategies used to extend the life of concrete pavements. Full-depth repairs are one strategy routinely used by state agencies, municipalities and other owners to effectively repair pavement defects at joints and cracks.
Join us for an exploration of the proper methods to ensure long-term repair and prevent premature failures of full-depth repairs.
At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will be able to:
1. Describe commonly observed pavement degradation mechanisms.
2. Identify feasible pavement candidates for full-depth repairs.
3. Understand the proper techniques for conducting full-depth repairs.
4. Discuss what types of issues can arise if good construction techniques and precautions are not followed during repair execution.
Live Webinar Speakers
Timothy Martin, P.E.
Tim has over 25 years of experience in the performance, repair, and preservation of pavement structures. He has conducted hundreds of pavement condition assessments for pavements at municipalities, state DOTs, FHWA, DoD, and FAA. He has led failure investigations of concrete pavements, which have including NDT and laboratory testing of construction materials, design, and loadings. Tim has been an active member of the American Concrete Institute Committee 325 and 330 as well as the American Concrete Pavement Association’s Strategic Advisory Committee and Asset Management Task Force.
Laura has over 30 years of experience in evaluation construction and geological materials using polarized-light microscopy, scanning electron microscopy with x-ray spectroscopy, electron probe microanalysis, x-ray fluorescence & diffraction, and other investigative methods. She has conducted numerous field and laboratory investigations of materials behavior and condition, and has provided expert testimony in numerous litigation cases. Her principal focus lies in assessing the performance of existing, historic, and new construction through detailed analysis of compositional and microstructural characteristics.
