Synopsis of the seminar:

This is a technical seminar explaining advanced methods in pavement design. The instructor will explain mechanistic and mechanistic-empirical pavement design methods. The seminar will include design examples and design iterations will be performed to optimize the design to develop a cost-effective pavement design. This course addresses:

  • Mechanistic Pavement Design philosophy
  • Typical inputs for various design parameters
  • Mechanistic-Empirical Pavement Design philosophy (ME Design)
  • Recommended inputs developed and reported by Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and leading State Departments of Transportation in the US


Learning Objectives:

participants in this course will be able to:

  • Perform cost-effective pavement design using state-of-the-practice design methods
  • Understand the recommended inputs for traffic and pavement materials
  • Predict pavement distresses and failure mode for the pavement designs
  • Design a preliminary maintenance and rehabilitation program for proposed pavement designs

CEU’s/ Professional Development Credits: 3

Location of Seminar:  ICE, 7 Spielman Road, Fairfield, NJ 07004
