This class will cover asphalt binder chemistry as it is related to pavement performance. Additionally, advances in analytical and measurement techniques will be explained with the opportunity to visit the WRI laboratories to see some of the equipment set up and running.

This full day course is being offered with an eye toward training the practitioner or researcher to understand fundamental bitumen properties that will aid in developing cost effective, consistent pavement solutions.

This class will follow the 52nd Annual Petersen Asphalt Research Conference (this class replaces the P3 Symposium which traditionally follows the Petersen Conference).
