This course is presented to give pavement engineers, transportation research managers, and general industry personnel a basic understanding of accelerated pavement testing (APT). Participants will be provided with a definition of APT, the reasons why the financial investment in APT can be cost effective, an overview of the evolution of APT technology, the history of APT research, and current collaborative activities in the APT research field.
LEARNING OUTCOMES: Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to discern whether accelerated pavement testing (APT) may be the right tool to meet their current research needs. They will understand the advantages and disadvantages of various ways to execute APT experiments, which is critical information for designing an APT program. Participants will know how to collaborate with other APT researchers in order to optimize their own experiments.
TARGET AUDIENCE: This course is intended to provide pavement engineers, transportation research managers, and general industry personnel with a basic understanding of the process of accelerated pavement testing.
