This course provides advanced technicians, designers, and engineers with a valuable method for understanding how the aggregate structure of an asphalt mixture affects volumetrics, field compatibility, and segregation potential. The course is taught by Bill Pine, Quality Control Director of Asphalt Technology at Heritage Construction & Materials, Inc. Bill begins with the basics of the Bailey Method and then quickly builds to give students an intensive look into the Bailey Method’s full potential. Bill, the renowned national expert in the use of the Bailey Method, will show students the factors that influence how aggregate particles pack together and how to define and evaluate mix types according to Bailey Method principles. Students will also learn how to incorporate and handle RAP and/or RAS into the process. Students will receive a full version of Bill’s latest edition of the Bailey Method analysis software and hands-on training by Bill on using this software. The instructors will use many examples and offer plenty of question/discussion time to maximize student comprehension. The class can accommodate up to 20 students, giving students plenty of access to our experienced instructors for Q&A at any time during the course.

A laptop is necessary for this course! Students should bring a laptop computer pre-loaded with a fully operational copy of Microsoft Word & Excel 2010 or newer and Adobe Reader. Students will not be downloading any software, simply receiving a USB device that holds the Word, Excel (with macros), and PDF files to be used during and after the course.
