Flexible Pavement Design - Principles & Practices

An intensive two day short course ideal for engineers and engineering technologists working for federal, state, or local authorities, consultants and contractors. This course is ideal for those involved in non highway roads and pavements, and for those involved in local government work, and provides the pre-requisite learning for those wishing to undertake the Advanced Pavement Design course.

Description

Overview: 

Intended to inform on the basic principles & practices involved in pavement design, the course program will closely follow the content in the appropriate Chapters of the Austroads Guide to Pavement Technology - Part 2: Pavement Structural Design, which is used as the principal reference and a copy is provided for each delegate at the course.

The materials content will however cover more information than is in the current Guide, as the selection of materials is critical to producing a road/pavement design that will deliver both structural and functional performance. Although predominately concentrating on unbound pavements, considerable time is allocated to designing bound pavements for light traffic as per Austroads Guide Chapter 12 – Design of Lightly-Trafficked Pavements.

Topics Covered:

  • Pavement Design Systems
  • Construction & Maintenance Considerations
  • Road Environment
  • Subgrade Evaluation
  • Unbound Pavement Materials
  • Design Traffic and Case Study
  • Structural Thickness of Unbound Flexible Pavements
  • Design Exercise – unbound pavements
  • Workshop on Unbound Pavements
  • Background to Mechanistic Design of Bound Pavements
  • Temperature Environment & Traffic Considerations– Bound Pavements
  • Design of Bound Pavements for Lightly Trafficked Pavements
  • Worked Examples & Design Exercise

Payment

Payment is required 14 days from date of invoice. All payment must made prior to commencement of course.
