Overview

After participating in the course, you will be able to:

  • Design new pavements using the AASHTO 1993 Guide for the Design of Pavements
  • Have a basic understanding of the new mechanistic-empirical pavement design procedure
  • Understand and know when to use non-destructive testing for pavement evaluation
  • Apply management techniques to improve the life-cycle and reduce the cost of pavements
  • Design and maintain permeable pavements for water quality improvement and quantity management
  • Use maintenance and rehabilitation methods to extend the useful life of pavements
  • Manage pavements and sidewalks efficiently with insight into pavement defects, their causes and repair

Description:
Cost effective pavement management is a result of careful design, quality construction and timely maintenance. Agencies are faced with the challenge of maintaining the significant public investment in transportation infrastructure. Although new materials and methods are being added to the roadway manager’s repertoire, they must accommodate increasing loads while continually fighting a challenging battle against deterioration.

This course examines practical techniques for the evaluation of asset condition and provides preventive maintenance and rehabilitation methods and materials to cost-effectively extend the service life of transportation assets. Learning will be further enhanced through presentations of case study examples.

Course Outline:

  • Factors that affect pavement performance
  • Pavement design
  • Pavement rehabilitation design
  • Pavement management
  • Life-cycle costing
  • Preventive maintenance
  • Rehabilitation and maintenance methods
  • Pavement technology developments
  • Examples of poor and best practices for roads and sidewalks

Who Should Attend:
Project Engineers and Managers • Municipal Engineers • Operations Maintenance Engineers Construction and Design Engineers • Contractors • Consultants
