Webinar topic: Functional Aspects of Concrete Pavement Durability

Water although necessary for the sustainment of human life is often a determinant to a pavement structure.  The service life in several often inconspicuous ways that it is affected by the effect that water has on the material itself as well as the layered structure of a pavements.  This presentation will explore various aspects of pavement service, maintenance and durability and some inter-relationships between the presence of water in a pavement structure and its associated design, construction, and performance.
About the Speaker: 

Dr. Dan Zollinger is a Research Engineer at the Texas A&M Transportation Institute (TTI) and a Professor at Texas A&M University in the Department of Civil Engineering. He is the manager for the rigid pavements program at TTI and is a former President of the International Society for Concrete Pavements (ISCP – 2006-10. His major areas of research include concrete pavement performance, rehabilitation, behavior, and design. He is actively engaged in pavement evaluation, pavement design, and pavement performance. His has worked for several years on the development of performance models for mechanistic pavement design procedures; this effort has involved the collection of performance data from a variety of concrete pavement sections to validate an array of distress mechanisms for concrete pavement ranging from pavement blow-ups to faulting. He has also researched for several years the structural behavior of concrete materials under field conditions and the evaluation of drainage related performance as a function of base type, drainage effectiveness, erosion resistance, and joint sealant performance. He retired from the USAR at the rank of Lt Colonel with 39 years’ service in 2009.  EDUCATION B.S., Civil Engineering, Utah State University, 1977 M.S., Civil Engineering, Utah State University, 1981 Ph.D., Civil Engineering, University of Illinois, 1989
