INTELLIGENT COMPACTION DATA MANAGEMENT (ICDM)
March 21st (8:00 AM - 4:00 PM) - March 22nd, 2018 (8:00 AM - 12:00 PM)
GPS Alaska - 360 E. International Airport Rd. Suite 10, Anchorage, AK 99518
GPS Alaska is proud to offer this two day course instructed by Dr. George K. Chang. P.E., director of research at The Transtec Group. Our objective is to give you a better understanding of the big picture and basics of intelligent compaction (IC) technologies and Veta Software. IC data collection, data characteristics, and troubleshooting will be explored in depth. There will also be a hands-on equipment demonstration and Veta analysis to understand the data and meet The Department of Transportation's expectations.
