This course provides participants with current guidelines on design and construction details for concrete pavements. Topics include important concrete pavement design details, including subgrade preparation, base selection, drainage design, thickness design,
joint design, and shoulder characterization. The course explains how to select the proper details to enhance structural performance. Emphasis is given to jointed plain concrete pavements (JPCP), although the course includes instruction on jointed reinforced
concrete pavements (JRCP) and continuously reinforced concrete pavements (CRCP).
Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
- Recognize the effect of critical concrete pavement design details on overall concrete pavement performance
- Identify critical construction and maintenance practices that impact performance
- Select appropriate concrete pavement design details to enhance the performance of the pavement for a specific design condition
Highway engineers who are responsible for the design and construction of better-performing, longer-lasting concrete pavements.
