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 common design and construction features important 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 a flexible pavement; others 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 in a cost-effective manner? 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.
