Pavement Tools Consortium

The objective of the Pavement Tools Consortium (PTC) is to develop and use hot mix asphalt (HMA) oriented, computer-based pavement tools. The major focus of the Consortium is the enhancement of pavement-related training and construction. The goal of the PTC is to further develop and provide pavement tools. Examples include: (1) HMA View Database; (2) Interactive Pavement Training CD/DVD (including the Virtual Superpave Laboratory); (3) Computer Simulations; (4) Distance Learning Content and Delivery; and (5) Computation Software (EverFe, EverFlex, etc.). Identification of specific pavement tools and the necessary development efforts will be coordinated through an annual Consortium meeting and electronic communication. The initial collaborative duration is five years. The number of products and versions developed depends on the total annual funding available. The Pavement Interactive can be found at: www.pavementinteractive.org and is the main outcome of this project.
