Pavement Investigation, Design and Construction Monitoring

Pavement Investigation, Design and Construction Monitoring

Best practice guidelines for investigation and design of pavements will be introduced. This includes flexible and rigid pavement for roads, industrial developments and subdivisions.

Most cost effective and environmentally friendly design solutions with latest technology will be covered for new and existing pavements. Assessment of pavement failures and provide solutions will be presented in the course. Prediction of pavement deflection and curvature will be discussed in details in the course with examples using the design and analysis program Circly to meet Auckland Council and NZTA requirements. 

Mechanistic pavement design will be introduced with applications using latest version of Circly program. Design will cover flexible (asphalt and granular pavement with stabilisation) and rigid (concrete) pavement for roads, industrial developments and container terminals. 

Pavement testing during construction will be introduced in the course to ensure that the pavement has been constructed as per the design and specifications. Inspection and testing plan (ITP) and Holdpoints for each pavement layer will be covered.
