COURSE TITLE: An Introduction to Pavement Design in Seasonal Frost Conditions
COURSE NO: C04-029
An Introduction to Pavement Design in Seasonal Frost Conditions
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides introductory information about evaluation of soil conditions, selection of materials, and design methods for pavements in seasonal frost conditions. It presents criteria and procedures for the design and construction of pavements placed on subgrade or base course materials subject to seasonal frost action. The most prevalent modes of distress in pavements and their causes are listed.

 

The detrimental effects of frost action in subsurface materials are manifested by non-uniform heave of pavements during the winter and by loss of strength of affected soils during the ensuing thaw period. This is accompanied by a corresponding increase in damage accumulation and a more rapid rate of pavement deterioration during the period of weakening; other related detrimental effects of frost and low temperatures are possible loss of compaction, development of permanent roughness, restriction of drainage by the frozen strata, and cracking and deterioration of the pavement surface. Hazardous operating conditions, excessive maintenance, or pavement destruction may result.

 

This 4 PDH online course is intended for civil and geotechnical engineers and other design and construction professionals wanting to learn how to design rigid and flexible pavements where seasonal frost conditions exist.

COURSE TITLE: An Introduction to Pavement Overlays
COURSE NO: C02-046
An Introduction to Pavement Overlays
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides an introduction to the selection, application and design of plain and reinforced portland cement concrete and asphalt concrete pavement overlays for streets, roads, parking and open storage areas.

 

Normally, overlays of existing pavements are used to increase the load-carrying capacity of an existing pavement or to correct a defective surface condition on the existing pavement. Of these reasons, the first requires a structural design procedure for determining the thickness of overlay; whereas the second requires only a thickness of overlay sufficient to correct the surface condition, and no increase in load-carrying capacity is considered.

 

The design method for overlays included in this course determines the thickness required to increase load-carrying capacity. These methods have been developed from a series of full-scale accelerated traffic tests on various types of overlays and are, therefore, empirical. These methods determine the required thickness of overlay that, when placed on the existing pavement, will be equivalent in performance to the required design thickness of a new pavement placed on subgrade.

 

This 2 PDH online course is intended for civil engineers and other design and construction professionals seeking to learn how to design and apply flexible and rigid overlays to existing flexible, composite and rigid pavements.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Understanding the measures necessary to prepare existing pavement for overlay
  • Knowing the three bond conditions when overlaying a rigid pavement with a rigid overlay
  • Learning about the condition rating factors "C" for existing pavements to be overlaid
  • Learning how to calculate the thickness of rigid overlays for rigid pavements
  • Learning how to design a rigid overlay of an existing flexible pavement
  • Learning how to design overlays for composite pavements
  • Learning how to apply overlays to flexible pavements

COURSE TITLE: An Introduction to Road Design for Cold Regions
COURSE NO: C02-045
An Introduction to Road Design for Cold Regions
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course discusses roadway and runway design considerations for arctic and subarctic regions. It will introduce you to the design of subgrades, base courses and flexible and rigid pavements in these cold regions.

 

The construction of satisfactory roads and airfield runways in seasonal frost and permafrost areas is normally more difficult than in temperate regions because the imperviousness of the underlying permafrost tends to produce poor soil drainage conditions, and because disturbance of the natural surface may set in motion adjustments in thermal regime, drainage, and slope stability which may have serious and progressive consequences.

 

This 2 PDH online course is intended for civil and geotechnical engineers and other design and construction professionals seeking an introduction to materials and methods for design of roads and airfield runways in arctic and subarctic regions.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Learning about the soils where there is danger of loss in bearing capacity upon thawing, and of heaving action upon freezing
  • Understanding the four classifications of soils in which ice segregation generally occurs when favorable ground water and freezing temperatures are present
  • Learning how frost and permafrost conditions may be altered by changed surface conditions produced by construction
  • Understanding how in areas of permafrost the location of the ground water surface is greatly influenced by the existence of the underlying impervious permafrost layer
  • Making recommendations for base course and pavement composition in arctic and subarctic regions
  • Learning about base course design in non-frost-susceptible soils

COURSE TITLE: An Introduction to Roller-Compacted Concrete Pavements
COURSE NO: C03-036
An Introduction to Roller-Compacted Concrete Pavements
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides an introduction to the materials, methods, delivery and placement of roller-compacted portland cement concrete pavements. It describes procedures and criteria that are applicable to the design and construction of roller-compacted concrete pavements.

 

Roller-compacted concrete pavement (RCCP) employs a concrete paving technology that involves laydown and compaction of a zero-slump concrete mixture using equipment similar to that used in placement and compaction of asphaltic concrete pavement. By using these construction techniques, the potential exists to save one-third or more of the cost of conventional concrete pavement. Although the concept and technology behind RCCP is relatively new, RCCP has already proven itself cost-effective in projects including log-sorting yards, port facilities, heavy equipment parking areas, tank trails, and haul roads.

 

This 3 PDH online course is intended for civil and highway engineers and other design and construction professionals seeking an introduction to the technologies, equipment and construction practices for roller-compacted portland cement concrete pavements.

COURSE TITLE: An Introduction to the Principles of Pavement Drainage
COURSE NO: C02-048
An Introduction to the Principles of Pavement Drainage
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides an introduction to the terminology, fundamentals and methodologies for the design of drainage features in pavements.

 

Water has a detrimental effect on pavement performance, primarily by either weakening subsurface materials or erosion of material by free water movement.  For flexible pavements, the weakening of the base, subbase or subgrade when saturated with water is one of the main causes of pavement failures.  In rigid pavement, free water trapped between the rigid concrete surface and an impermeable layer directly beneath the concrete, moves due to pressure caused by loadings.

 

This movement of water (referred to as pumping) erodes the subsurface material creating voids under the concrete surface.  In frost areas, subsurface water will contribute to frost damage by heaving during freezing and loss of subgrade support during thawing. Poor subsurface drainage can also contribute to secondary damage such as 'D' cracking or swelling of subsurface materials.

 

This 2 PDH online course is intended for civil engineers and other design and construction professionals wanting an introduction to the principles of pavement drainage.
