Vincent D. Reynolds, MBA, PE
The use of Reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) has been practiced since 1974 in Nevada and Texas. With the sponsorship of the Federal Highway Administration more than 40 states performed RAP demonstration projects between 1976 and 1982.
Though it has been used for decades, reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) is still considered to be in its early stages of development and use. This 3 hour online course will explore the various uses of RAP such as asphaltic concrete, base and subbase material as well as embankment and fill material. The material properties will be discussed such as shear strength, density, and compaction to name a few.
This course will provide the reader with the knowledge to use RAP on their next project. The course materials are based solely on the website of the FHWA’s Turner – Fairbank Highway Research Center and their RAP web pages. This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
