Cold In-place Recycling (CIR) is a method of reconstructing any flexible pavement where the need arises from structural failures. These failures include: transverse cracking, wheel rutting, potholes, surface irregularities, or a combination of the above.
The proper selection of a CIR process in conjunction with good specifications and quality construction are all equally important in the long-term performance of the pavement rehabilitation.
This series on CIR will introduce each method and provide a background on when, how, and why that method is selected/used.
This training is meant to provide an overview of CIR, including an explanation of the pre-production inspection, completing the control strip, full production of the mix, mix placement, curing and maintenance, acceptance testing, and measurement and payment. This course contains 3 modules:
Module 1: Introduction to Cold In-Place Recycling
Module 2: Cold In-Place Recycling Full Production
Module 3: Cold In-Place Recycling Post Production
This course will provide the inspector with a background and proper inspection procedures when placing cold-in-place hot mix asphalt.
This training is designed for Local, County, and State owner agency technicians/inspectors. It is also useful for individuals who need awareness or basic understanding of cold in-place recycling. This training was developed by the Transportation Curriculum Coordination Council (TCCC) in partnership with AASHTO, NHI, and is recommended for TCCC levels II through IV.
