ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

REGISTRATION IS FULL - THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST

“This was a great workshop to learn about the FAARFIELD and COMFAA applications and to interact with peers from all over the country. Well worth the investment in time and PDH's achieved.”

The 2021 ACC Airfield Pavement Design, Evaluation and Analysis Workshop will take place December 7-9 in Indianapolis, IN.

The workshop – limited to 50 registrants – will provide participants with a comprehensive and hands-on introduction to airfield pavement design; airfield pavement types and pavement performance; subgrade soils and granular materials; aircraft traffic; flexible and rigid pavement design; current airfield pavement-related research; rigid pavement thickness design; rigid pavement design details; pavement design for airfield shoulders; overlay design; pavement evaluation and overlay considerations; ACN-PCN background and concepts; and PCN approach and determination for rigid and flexible pavements.

WORKSHOP LEARNING OBJECTIVES

At the conclusion of this ACC workshop, participants will be able to:
• Explain the methodology behind rigid and flexible pavement design, evaluation and repair.
• Apply subgrade, materials, and aircraft characteristic inputs to complete pavement designs and analyses using FAARFIELD v2.0.3.
• Calculate PCN values for rigid and flexible pavements using COMFAA.
• Describe the different types of HMA and PCC overlay designs.
• Use characteristics of existing pavements and FAARFIELD’s overlay design procedures to develop overlays of rigid and flexible pavements.

WORKSHOP PRESENTERS

• Monty Wade, P.E., President, Applied Pavement Technology, Inc.
• Harold V. Honey, P.E., PMP, Senior Airfield Pavement Engineer, Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)
• Genevieve Long, P.E., LEED AP, Program Director, Applied Pavement Technology, Inc.

“This course should be a prerequisite to obtaining a professional engineering license if working in the aviation field.”

Update as of October 28, 2021

UPDATE TO COVID POLICY CRITERIA FOR ATTENDANCE

ACC is committed to ensuring the safest possible environment for attendees, presenters, and staff at the 2021 ACC Airfield Pavement Design, Evaluation & Analysis Workshop in Indianapolis, IN. ACC has implemented updated preventative measures to reduce the potential spread of COVID-19. Attendees should review and plan to abide by the following guidelines for the December workshop. Please note that there will be no exception to the policy and anyone who does not submit a vaccine certificate and negative test result in advance will not receive a badge or be able to attend workshop sessions or events.

Before Leaving Home
• Attendees must both be vaccinated and will also be asked to provide a negative COVID test result within 72 hours prior to the start of the workshop. ACC has selected a company that will be providing HIPAA compliant vaccine certificate and testing verifications as a requirement for your attendance at the workshop. This web-based application will provide workshop attendees with the ability to securely submit their COVID-19 vaccine certificate and test results for validation and confirmation of your attendance at the workshop.
• Tests should be dated within 3 days prior to the 7:15 a.m. start of the workshop on December 7th. Review and verification can take up to four hours, so please submit your vaccine certificate and negative test result accordingly.
• PCR or rapid antigen test is acceptable.
• Test must be administered by a clinician (no self-administered/over the counter tests will be accepted).

On-Site During the Workshop
• We ask that you wear a face-covering indoors in the meeting rooms utilized as part of the workshop.
• All attendees will abide by state and local ordinances and the hotel policies related to COVID-19 prevention. The hotel will follow the CDC and local authority guidance at the time of the workshop.
• Disposable masks will be provided at the registration desk for those who need one.
• If an attendee begins to actively experience COVID-19 symptoms during the workshop they should self-quarantine immediately and notify ACC staff right away.

Post-Workshop
• Workshop attendees should self-monitor for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 and are asked to contact ACC right away if they test positive for COVID-19 up to 14 days after returning home.

PLEASE NOTE: This policy is subject to change at any time. Updates will be immediately communicated to attendees. Thank you in advance for your understanding and for complying with this policy.
