Course Dates:
22-24 April 2018

This course is located in Doha, Qatar at the Texas A&M University at Qatar Engineering Building

Course Overview:
Pavement materials removed from existing asphalt roadways, parking lots, and driveways are known as Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement (RAP). RAP, when properly processed by crushing and screening, consists of well-graded aggregates that are either fully or partially coated with asphalt binder. RAP processing is typically completed either at a central processing facility or on the job site (in-place processing). By incorporating RAP in new asphalt mixtures, there are many potential benefits. The constituent materials in RAP, asphalt and aggregate, will replace a portion of the virgin materials needed to produce new asphalt mixtures leading to financial savings and construction of more environmentally conscious roads. RAP has other valuable uses including: granular base or subbase material, stabilized base aggregates, and embankment fill materials. This course will introduce the participants to the different methods of processing RAP, asphalt mixture design incorporating RAP, and testing methodologies to evaluate the performance of mixtures incorporating RAP.

Learning Objectives:
The learning objectives of this course are:
- Describe the different methods of processing RAP
- List and describe the tests needed to characterize the properties of RAP
- Describe how to design asphalt mixtures with RAP
- Describe how to evaluate the performance of asphalt mixtures with RAP.

Learning Outcome:
At the end of the course, the participants will:
- Be able to successfully design an asphalt mixture with RAP that can perform in the field similar to the same mixture with no RAP.
- Become familiar with the central plant operations to support recycling in asphalt mixes.
- Learn the different methods used in asphalt pavement recycling.
- Learn adjustments to mix design parameters to accommodate reclaimed asphalt pavements (RAP).

Who Should Attend:
The class is intended for professionals and engineers working for government agencies, contractors and consultants dealing with material characterization, design and construction of asphalt pavements.
