An Introduction to Flexible Pavement Design

Overview
The prime factor influencing the structural design of a pavement is the load-carrying capacity required. From an engineering design perspective, the thickness of pavement necessary to provide the desired load-carrying capacity is a function of five principal variables, which are revealed in the course.
The course discusses the flexible pavements design procedure generally referred to as the California Bearing Ratio (CBR) design procedure. This procedure requires that each layer be thick enough to distribute the stresses induced by traffic so that when they reach the underlying layer they will not overstress and produce excessive shear deformation in the underlying layer. Each layer must also be compacted adequately so that traffic does not produce an intolerable amount of added compaction.
This course, intended for engineers, architects and construction professionals who want an introduction to flexible pavement design for streets, roads and parking areas, will provide a good start in addressing subgrades, select materials and subbase courses, base courses and pavement design.
The reader must pass a multiple-choice quiz consisting of fifteen (15) questions in order to receive PDH credit.
