He acted and is still invited to act as conference chairman, session chairman and keynote speaker at many international conferences on asphalt, concrete and concrete block pavements.
Next to his teaching and research duties he was, and still is, involved in consultancy projects all over the world ranging from road and airport pavement design and rehabilitation projects to arbitration cases.
Because FAARFIELD was developed to support FAA standard pavement designs, a basic understanding of FAA material and construction standards is necessary for proper use of the program.
Therefore, the properties of FAA standard materials will be examined in some detail.
He has been and still is teaching in many countries all over the world and in particular in China and South Africa where he is teaching on a regular basis.
He authored numerous papers (I stopped counting them some time ago) in the field of pavement design and rehabilitation and road materials.
In 1985 he left the university to become managing director of Netherlands Pavement Consultants, a company specialized in pavement design, evaluation and management as well as road materials.
In that position he was responsible for many road and airfield projects in the Netherlands, Europe and all over the world.
This workshop will familiarize participants with the latest FAA design procedures, with an emphasis on practical design examples for new flexible pavements.
