TRB 97th Annual Meeting

Doctoral Student Research in Innovative Asphalt Performance Testing

Sunday, January 07, 2018, 9:00 AM-12:00 PM, Convention Center
Amir Golalipour, Engineering and Software Consultants, Inc.; Hassan Tabatabaee, Cargill, Inc.; Benjamin Bowers, Virginia Department of Transportation, presiding
Sponsored by Standing Committee on Asphalt Binders; Standing Committee on Critical Issues and Emerging Technologies in Asphalt; Standing Committee on Non-Binder Components of Asphalt Mixtures; and Standing Committee on Structural Requirements of Asphalt Mixtures

This workshop is a forum for doctoral students to share research that they may later present at a TRB Annual Meeting and for the audience to learn about the most recent asphalt research from select universities nationwide. Students receive feedback from audience questions and comments and benefit from reviews of their work by panel members and moderators.
