The Erie-Niagara Chapter of NYSSPE and ASCE Buffalo welcome you to a Joint Lunch PDH Seminar
Speaker: Brendan Daly, P.E., PMP, LafargeHolcim
Brendan's 21 year civil engineering career has put him at the forefront of large construction projects (including P3) in roads, energy, environmental remediation, transport and mining.
This presentation will focus on highly plastic soils that are problematic for roadway construction in the United States. The expansive nature of clay in the presence of water increases the risk for deformation of the subgrade which results in pavement deterioration and even failure. Cement stabilization of clay soils can reduce the shrink-swell potential and improve the overall strength by reducing the plasticity and reactivity to water in the subgrade soils. There are well documented procedures for the mix design of these stabilization treatments by the Portland Cement Association, AASHTO and ASTM as well as construction methods and field testing to validate the design of such solutions. This construction method is accepted by state departments of transportation, toll ways and local highway departments as an effective method to deal with these soil types.
Additionally, Full Depth Reclamation (FDR) for asphalt recycling in place for road rehabilitation projects will be covered.
