About the conference
In view of the high international interest in design and construction of sustainable pavement systems, the AM3P conference offers a unique international forum for exchange of ideas on various approaches to predict pavement performance. It will promote linkages and interactions between material characterization methods, mechanistic modeling, and empirical predictions. The conference will emphasize comparisons between modeling results and observed performance.
The topics of the conference include experimental laboratory material characterization, field measurements and in-situ material characterization, constitutive modeling and simulation, empirical predictions, statistically sound calibration and validation methods, innovative pavement materials and interface systems, non-destructive measurement techniques, surface characterization, tire-surface interaction, pavement noise, pavement rehabilitation and case studies.
San Antonio is chosen as the venue because it is central to Texas expansive roadway infrastructure and easily accessible from within the United States and Internationally. San Antonio is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the country with over 31 million visitors per year. The 2020 AM3P conference hotel is right on the Riverwalk providing easy access to historical landmarks and a multitude of dinning/entertainment opportunities.
