The Mounir Khatib Endowed Engineering Lecture Series: Superpave for Asphalt Binders and Mixtures
The Lebanese American University (LAU), in collaboration with the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR), is hosting a seminar on Pavement Engineering tailored to the academic and consulting industry in Lebanon. The seminar would offer the following benefits:
- The technical concepts of pavement engineering will be introduced to civil engineering students and consulting engineers.
- The participants will gain good understanding on how asphalt materials are produced, designed, and perform under the combined actions of traffic loads and the environment.
- With the technical backgrounds on the latest technologies in Pavement Engineering, engineers will be capable of designing and maintaining long lasting asphalt pavements with excellent benefit/cost ratios.
- Introduction to Asphalt Concrete (AC) Pavements
- Behavior and Engineering Properties of Asphalt Binders
- Behavior and Design of AC Mixtures
