Design of Flexible and Rigid Pavements

1 Professional Development Hours

After Participating in this course, you will be able to:

  • Be able to recognize and use current common pavement design procedures
  • Understand key components and factors necessary for the cost-effective design of flexible and rigid pavements
  • Understand the common design and construction features essential to the performance of both asphalt and concrete-surfaced pavements
  • Design and recognize specification and construction activities that can improve the performance of pavement
  • Assist in developing specifications to ensure the performance of pavements
  • Communicate and promote good road design and construction practices

Parking lots, municipal roadways, airports and major highways all use some form of pavement. However, each application may be served by a specific pavement type. Some may be constructed using flexible pavement, others with rigid pavement. Which types are appropriate for each application? What are the functional requirements for rigid vs. flexible pavement? How can each be constructed and maintained cost-effectively?

This webinar discusses pavement design, specification, subgrade preparation, base/subbase and surface types and function, construction details, and long-term functional and structural performance considerations to ensure a long life and effective product.
