  • ACC Understanding the Performance Grade (PG) Asphalt Binder System: How to Specify the Correct Binder for Your Airfield Project Live Webinar

    Product not yet rated Contains 3 Component(s) Includes a Live Web Event on 04/16/2020 at 2:30 PM (EDT)

    This 90-minute ACC webinar on Thursday, April 16, 2020 at 1:00 p.m. EST will provide an overview of the Performance Grade (PG) asphalt binder specification (ASTM D6373) used by the FAA to select the proper asphalt for use in airfield pavements.

    This ACC webinar will provide an overview of the Performance Grade (PG) asphalt binder specification (ASTM D6373) used by the FAA to select the proper asphalt for use in airfield pavements. It will detail the development of the Performance Grade (PG) binder system and compare it with the shortcomings of the previous asphalt binder grading systems. The program will explain the effects of climate on asphalt pavement performance, and how the PG system selects the asphalt grade for any project location. The presenter will describe in detail the tests used to grade asphalts using the PG system and their relationships to field performance. The webinar will also explain asphalt "grade bumping" criteria - why it is necessary and how it applies to the current FAA specifications for designing airfield asphalt pavements. Participants will learn how selecting an incorrect asphalt binder for an airfield pavement can cause the pavement to rut or crack prematurely, which shortens the pavement life significantly. The webinar will outline why it is important to understand the basics of the PG asphalt binder system to be able to select the asphalt which will provide the highest level of pavement performance and the longest pavement life.

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES

    At the end of this ACC webinar, participants will be able to:
    • Differentiate between the PG binder system and the previous asphalt specifications.  
    • Describe the tests used to grade asphalts in the PG system.  
    • Explain the importance of "grade bumping" on airfield pavements. 
    • Select and apply the correct asphalt for any airfield project.

  • ACC Designing for Universal Access to United States Airports Live Webinar

    Product not yet rated Contains 3 Component(s) Includes a Live Web Event on 04/02/2020 at 1:00 PM (EDT)

    This 90-minute ACC webinar on Thursday, April 2, 2020 at 1:00 p.m. EST will guide participants through requirements and opportunities in accessible design, and be introduced to the regulations that govern accessible design, including the 2018 FAA Reauthorization Bill that included an Airline Passengers with Disabilities Bill of Rights.

    More than ever before, society has embraced the fact that travel is for everyone. An increase in mobility options for individuals with disabilities has created a larger customer base for tourism and revenue. Additionally, airports need to retain access for the current traveling public. According to several research consortiums, approximately 10,000 Baby Boomers reach retirement age every day. This generation will include people who develop cognitive and physical disabilities and continue to seek air travel. Airports, airlines, and the cities they connect are realizing these trends. 

    Although accessibility is required by The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), this regulation comes with the challenge of imparting new concepts upon legacy infrastructure and policies. 

    This ACC webinar will guide participants through requirements and opportunities in accessible design. Participants will be introduced to the regulations that govern accessible design, including the 2018 FAA Reauthorization Bill that included an Airline Passengers with Disabilities Bill of Rights. Participants will understand the diversity of cognitive and physical disabilities that can be considered in the design and operation of facilities. Participants will become familiar with technology that is currently used to improve special needs travelers’ navigation within airports. Ultimately, participants will understand an approach to infrastructure and policy called universal design, which moves accessibility from the owner’s punch list to the designers’ foundational creativity.

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES

    At the end of this ACC webinar, participants will be able to:
    • Summarize regulations that govern accessible requirements and locate FAA or ACRP resources that help interpret the requirements.
    • Highlight technology and practices to help individuals with disabilities navigate airports.
    • Explain the benefits of universal design to tourism and transportation companies.
    • Apply the concept of universal design as a collaborative tool during planning and design.

  • ACC ACC PFAS Chemicals: An Overview and the Implications to Airports On-Demand Webinar

    Product not yet rated Contains 1 Component(s)

    This 90-minute ACC on-demand webinar held on Thursday, June 20, 2019 provides an overview of the key technical and regulatory issues that airports face in addressing risks regarding Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) contamination.

    This ACC on-demand webinar provides an overview on the key technical and regulatory issues that airports face in addressing risks regarding Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) contamination. These man-made chemicals have unique properties that have made them useful in a wide range of products, including aqueous firefighting foam (AFFF). A few (no more than a dozen at this point) of the 4,000+ PFAS compounds have been shown to exhibit properties that raise concerns about their long-term impacts on human health and the environment, and present challenges to responding to those concerns.  

    The on-demand webinar will cover the environmental characteristics of the PFAS chemicals of greatest current concern, regulatory status and legal considerations, and a case study of how PFAS contamination at a manufacturing facility in the region led an airport to a proactive response to historic airport firefighting activities and practices. The program will outline a step-wise approach that airports can take to be proactive in the face of significant uncertainties, potential risks and federal obligations. As an “emerging contaminant” (such as PCBs or asbestos in the past), the focus on PFAS, regulatory responses, technologies, etc. is increasing exponentially every day, week and month that goes by. This webinar will help the industry to get up to speed on developments that have occurred up through the first half of 2019.

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES

    At the end of this ACC on-demand webinar, participants will be able to:
    • Identify the human health and environmental concerns regarding PFAS chemicals.
    • Define the most likely potential sources of PFAS contamination and risk at an airport.
    • Recognize the implications of scientific and regulatory uncertainty on airport decision-making.
    • Plan a step-wise approach to addressing potential PFAS risks.
