Overview

Learning Outcomes

  • Be able to recognize and use current common pavement design procedures.
  • Understand common design and construction features important to the performance of both asphalt and concrete surfaced pavements. 
  • To design and recognize specification and construction activities that can improve the performance of pavements. 
  • Communicate and promote good road design and construction practices.     

Purpose and Background
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.

Primary Discussion Topics/Webinar Outline
This webinar provides an introduction to the design of flexible and rigid pavements.  The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) 1993 pavement design procedure is covered along with an introduction to the new AASHTOWare Pavement ME mechanistic-empirical design method. 

The primary design, specification and construction factors that contribute to the long-term functional and structural performance of pavements ranging from parking lots to municipal roadways, airports and major highways are discussed.  Through a series of case studies, positive and negative design features and construction conditions are presented to give the participant a good understanding of what we can do better to ensure the cost-effective use of transportation investments.

Webinar Benefits           

  • Understand key components and factors necessary for the cost effective design of flexible and rigid pavements.
  • Be able to identify design and construction features that may negatively impact the performance of pavements.
  • Assist in developing specifications to ensure the performance of pavements. 

Webinar Outline

  • Characterization of design traffic
  • Analysis of subgrade support capability
  • Base and subbase materials
  • Detailing for asphalt and concrete surfacing
  • Impact of design and construction on long-term pavement performance

Who Should Attend

  • Engineers and other professionals involved in the design, evaluation and management of pavements
  • Provincial and municipal agencies
  • Private sector owners of flexible and rigid pavements
Time: 12:30 PM - 2:00 PM Eastern Time
