This comprehensive training begins with a discussion about the key variables to consider when designing a concrete pavement. The various design variables will be discussed in terms of what the variable means, how it’s quantified, and how it affects the thickness design. Next, the common concrete street and road thickness design methods/software will be briefly discussed. The course will also feature a discussion about the types of concrete pavements, and why jointed plain concrete pavements (JPCP) are the most common concrete pavement type in the U.S.

Introduction to Concrete Pavement Design for Street and Road Design, will be held on Oct. 23, 2012. Visit the American Concrete Pavement Association for more information.
