Concrete Pavement Preservation - Part III
This online engineering PDH interactive presentation provides guidance on three pavement preservation treatments: partial-depth repairs, full-depth repairs, and diamond grinding and grooving.
The need for the effective management of transportation assets has never been greater. In an era of an aging infrastructure, ever-increasing traffic demands, and shrinking budgets, transportation agencies are continually being asked to “do more with less” in maintaining the condition of their facilities.
Pavements represent a large part of that transportation infrastructure, and the need for their effective management is just as acute. Pavements that are left to deteriorate without timely preservation or maintenance treatments are likely to require major rehabilitation and reconstruction much sooner, and those are costly and disruptive activities. For concrete pavements, there are a variety of preservation treatments available to help agencies effectively manage their pavement network.
This 3 PDH online interactive presentation is intended primarily for structural and transportation engineers, design and construction personnel, and other technical professionals who are involved in concrete pavement preservation.
This continuing education interactive presentation is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- List benefits and appropriateness of using Partial-Depth Repairs (PDRs)
- List the advantages and disadvantages of different repair materials
- Describe recommended construction procedures for PDRs
- Identify typical construction problems and appropriate remedies for PDRs
- List benefits of Full-Depth Repairs (FDRs)
- Describe primary design considerations for FDRs in terms of dimensions, load transfer, and materials
- Describe recommended construction procedures for FDRs
- List advantages of precast concrete repairs
- Describe procedures for performing utility cut repairs
- Identify typical construction problems and remedies for FDRs
- Differentiate between conventional diamond grinding and diamond grooving, and list the purpose and benefits of each
- List characteristics of other surface texturing techniques, namely optimized texture for city streets (OTCS), next generation concrete surface (NGCS), and cold milling
- Identify appropriate blade spacing dimensions for conventional diamond grinding, diamond grooving, and NGCS
- Describe recommended construction procedures for conventional diamond grinding, diamond grooving, and NGCS
- Identify typical construction problems and remedies
