Intended Audience: engineers, architects and construction professionals

PDH UNITS: 3

2 STUDENTS ENROLLED

This is an introduction to flexible pavement design. It is a basic treatment that will introduce designers to some important principles and terminology. In simple applications on real projects the information provided will give designers a good start in addressing subgrades, select materials and subbase courses, base courses and pavement design for flexible pavements for streets, roads and parking lots.
