Advanced Permeable Pavement Design and Construction
Feb 9, 2021 /
Course Code: 0219-WEB21
Purpose and Background
The use of permeable pavements for stormwater management is gaining rapid acceptance across North America. While permeable pavements have been around for a long-time, poor performance is not unusual. This webinar highlights best practices for the design, construction and long-term maintenance of asphalt, concrete and interlocking concrete permeable pavements.
Lessons learned from the preparation of a new ASCE Standard for the Design of Permeable Pavements is presented.
Primary Discussion Topics/Webinar Outline
- Permeable pavement site characterization
- Risk matrix for the evaluation of the suitability of a permeable pavement for a specific site location
- Design detailing for permeable pavements
- Lessons learned from the construction and maintenance of permeable pavements
- Understand common design and construction features important to the performance of permeable pavements.
- To understand the impact of permeable pavement design features.
- Communicate and promote sustainable pavement design and construction.
- Understand the key input parameters for the successful design of permeable asphalt, concrete and interlocking concrete block pavements.
- Ability to design a permeable pavement for both structural and hydrologic capacity.
- Utilize previously impervious infrastructure to reduce the impact of peak stormwater runoff and improve stormwater quality.
- Subgrade preparation
- Base and subbase materials
- Design details for structural capacity
- Design details for hydrological capacity
- Determination of design traffic
- Analysis of subgrade support capability
- Analysis of rainfall intensity
- Site drainage analysis
- Appropriate selection of base and subbase aggregates
- Supplementary pavement surface and subsurface drainage
