The cost to attend is $299 per person, with a discount available for US Department of Transportation employees. Seats are limited!

ProVAL 3.5, a pavement profile viewing and analysis tool, displays the results of a pavement smoothness analysis on an aerial map.

ProVAL is an engineering software application used to view and analyze pavement profiles. In ProVAL, users can import profiles from various file formats and save them in the Pavement Profile standard file type. Entire analysis projects can be saved, which preserves user information and analysis inputs. After analyses have been performed, the user can print a report of the original profiles and the results of any analyses performed. ProVAL has been adopted by many agencies around the world.
