Course Title: Commercial Site Pavement Design, Installation and Maintenance
Delivery Method: Live Online
Course Description: This course examines the goals of pavement design, including smoothness, stability, and longevity. It explores the commercial design specific elements for parking lots, driveways, shared-use areas, sidewalks, paths and walkways. It examines the difference between the design and installation of flexible pavement and rigid pavement, and it covers the maintenance and rehabilitation processes of pavement.
Learning Objective 1:
Learners will be able to identify the principle goals of pavement design, including smooth and stabile surfaces with a long service life.
Learning Objective 2:
Learners will be able to identify the application of flexible pavements, and they will be able to discuss necessary soil support and subsurface preparation, material content and mixture, appropriate thickness requirement requirement. They will also be describe how to prepare and overlay existing pavement.
Learning Objective 3:
Learners will be able to identify the application of rigid pavements, and they will be able to discuss necessary soil support and subsurface preparation, material content and mixture, appropriate thickness requirement. They will also be describe how to prepare and overlay existing pavement.
Learning Objective 4:
Learners will be able to discuss the sustainability of pervious pavements
