This presentation will provide an overview of this ACI guide that provides information useful in designing and building a successful site paving project for heavy duty industrial and trucking facilities. This guide is intended for facilities with heavier design loads, non-standard vehicles, and/or higher volumes of heavy trucks. Examples of such facilities may include warehouses, factories, truck terminals, heavy equipment sales and service distribution centers, and ports. This guide will assist engineers, contractors, and testing agencies with designing, detailing, constructing, repairing, and inspecting site paving.

Learning Objectives

  1. Explain differences between designing commercial parking lots and industrial heavy traffic parking lots (ACI 330R-08 and 330.2R-17, respectively).
  2. Describe the importance of a proper pavement support system for industrial and trucking facilities.
  3. Recall design variables and how to use them to select proper pavement thickness for industrial and trucking facilities.
  4. Identify proper jointing details for concrete site paving.
