This training was prepared by the Transportation Curriculum Coordination Council (TCCC) in partnership with NHI to provide guidance on critical concrete pavement preservation issues. The training was sponsored by the FHWA and developed by the National Concrete Pavement Technology Center at Iowa State University. This training is offered by NHI, and we would like to give special recognition to the TCCC for their efforts. This course is recommended for the Transportation Curriculum Coordination Council levels I - IV.
This module covers the use of slab stabilization (also known as undersealing) and slab jacking of concrete pavements. Slab stabilization restores support beneath slabs where voids have been detected, and slab jacking is used to raise depressed or settled slabs.
This module is part of the curriculum from the Concrete Pavement Preservation Series (FHWA-NHI-131126) which presents current guidelines and recommendations for the design, construction, and selection of cost-effective concrete pavement preservation strategies. The other Web-based training modules include:
Module 1: Introduction (NHI-131126)
Module 2: Pavement Preservation Concepts (NHI-131126A)
Module 3: Concrete Pavement Evaluation (NHI-131126B)
Module 5: Partial-depth Repairs (NHI-131126D)
Module 6: Full-depth Repairs (NHI-131126E)
Module 7: Retrofitted Edge Drains (NHI-131126F)
Module 8: Dowel Bar Retrofit (NHI-131126G)
Module 9: Diamond Grinding and Grooving (NHI-131126H)
Module 10: Joint Resealing and Crack Sealing (NHI-131126I)
Module 11: Concrete Overlays (NHI-131126J)
Module 12: Strategy Selection (NHI-131126K)
The intended audience is quite diverse, and includes design engineers, quality control personnel, contractors, suppliers, technicians, and trades people. While the course is aimed at those who have some familiarity with concrete pavements and pavement preservation, it should also be of value to those that are new to the field.
In addition, our target audience could be geographically dispersed, in need of immediate training or information, or not have access to travel funds.
