Quality may be defined as an acceptable level of a property or performance which meets, or exceeds, the customer’s expectations. However, there are many different variables that may be examined during the production, placement, and compaction of Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) in an effort to determine whether a quality pavement has been constructed. This course will examine several methods owners/agencies have used to specify the criteria to be evaluated for determining the level of quality obtained. An exam is offered that will test the participant’s knowledge of key elements of specifying and conducting an effective QC/QA program for evaluating HMA mixtures.
