Debate about pavement management

Debate about pavement management

This video was recorded at 6th Symposium on Pavement Surface Characteristics (SURF), Portorož 2008. Every 4 years PIARC organizes an international symposium on pavement surface characteristics for roads and airfields, so called SURF events. The first symposium was held at State College, Pennsylvania, USA in June 1988, followed by symposia in Germany (Berlin, June 1992), New Zealand (Christchurch, September 1996), France (Nantes, June 2000), and Canada (Toronto, June 2004). The success and interest shown in these symposia has encouraged PIARC Technical Committee TC 4.2 "Road/Vehicle Interaction" and the Slovenian PIARC National Committee to start with organisation of the 6th International Symposium on Pavement Surface Characteristics of Roads and Airfields in 2008. With the new PIARC strategic plan 2008 - 2011 the current committee D 2a is associated with SURF 2008 and show that there is continuity of action of PIARC in the domain although the designation and precise terms of reference are changing from one cycle to the next. > More about SURF 2008 -
