Members of the Texas A&M Transportation Institute’s (TTI’s) Flexible Pavements Division were honored with a best paper award by the Association of Asphalt Paving Technologists (AAPT) during its Annual Meeting in March.
Research Engineer Fujie Zhou, Associate Research Engineer Sheng Hu, and Senior Research Engineer Tom Scullion received AAPT’s W.J. Emmons Award for their paper, Balanced RAP/RAS Mix Design System for Project-Specific Conditions. The prestigious national award was initiated by AAPT in 1949. The association was founded in 1924 and has 800 members worldwide.
“This is a great honor for me to receive this award, but it’s truly a team effort,” Zhou said. He presented the paper at the annual meeting. Zhou and his coauthors also received the Emmons Award in 2010, as well as a runner-up recognition for the Emmons Award in 2013.
The paper was published, along with the other annual meeting papers, in the AAPT Annual Journal.
