Session 1: "Pavement Preservation Utilizing Geosynthetic Pavement Reinforcing Interlayers"

Today’s asphalt pavements are under ever increasing traffic loads. As development rates of homes and businesses continue to increase, so too does the traffic volume and stress on our roadways. Asphalt reinforcing interlayers have proven on average to extend serviced life by 50% as well as bring down annual maintenance costs to just 33% of current cost of unreinforced pavements. This presentation will illustrate the concept of reinforcing pavements with geosynthetic interlayers, demonstrate installation test data on performance, best practices for successful installations and economic cost benefit analysis.

Mr. Ryan Baker, Chief Executive Officer, Arch Aerial LLC, Bio 

Session 2: "Drones in Civil Engineering: A Look at How Drones Are Driving Real Change Through Better Data"

Drones have now been in the mainstream for years, and there are certainly many uses for compelling footage for marketing and promotion of projects in commercial and heavy civil engineering projects, but how can drones be used to capture useful data for engineering purposes? In this presentation, we’ll explore how drones and drone services are being utilized in the field of civil engineering. More importantly, we’ll explore the data that these techniques produce, and how ASCE members should expect to interface with it.
