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 presents design and construction information on load transfer restoration (LTR), sometimes referred to as retrofitted load transfer. In the introduction we will describe the difference between load transfer restoration (generic term) and dowel bar retrofitting (DBR) which is a specific means of achieving LTR. There are other methods available, but DBR is the most proven.
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:
FHWA-NHI-131126A Preventive Maintenance and Pavement Preservation Concepts
FHWA-NHI-131126B Concrete Pavement Evaluation
FHWA-NHI-131126C Slab Stabilization and Slab Jacking
FHWA-NHI-131126D Partial-Depth Repairs
FHWA-NHI-131126E Full-Depth Repairs
FHWA-NHI-131126F Retrofitted Edge Drains
FHWA-NHI-131126H Diamond Grinding and Grooving
FHWA-NHI-131126I Joint Resealing and Crack Sealing
FHWA-NHI-131126J Strategy Selection
The intended audience for the Concrete Pavement Preservation Web-based Training 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.
