6.5 HSW LUs (AIA)


Mohammad Shafiee, PhD, P.Eng.

Associate Researcher at the National Research Council Canada’s Construction Research Centre

Dr. Shafiee has several years of R&D experience in transportation geotechnics, pavement mechanics and highway construction materials. Since 2012, he has contributed to more than 27 journal publications and conference proceedings and led and collaborated with different teams on major high-impact projects in climate resilient pavements and sustainable materials. Some of his recent activities have resulted in development of unique and novel tools such performance-graded asphalt cement under Changing Climate (PGAC3) and Pavement Adaptation Support Tool (PAST). His work also related to use of innovative and sustainable solution towards circular economy and low-carbon pathways across pavement sector by using waste by-products and recycled materials in hot-mix asphalt manufacturing.

Tyler Speakmon, Ph.D.

Senior paving engineer and senior infrastructure engineer at CEMEX

Dr. Speakmon has over 10 years of experience with concrete paving, engineering, design, and research. He has a master’s degree in Civil-Structural Engineering and a doctorate degree in Civil-Materials Engineering from Texas A&M University. He has worked with mix design, structural design, life cycle analyses and many other aspects of concrete paving.

Course Title: Pavement Design, Construction and Maintenance

Delivery Method: Live Online

Course Description: This course examines the design, construction and maintenance of pavements. Specifically, the course discusses the principles (goals, terminology, economics) of pavement design before closely examining preparations and designs for flexible and rigid pavements. Then, maintenance and rehabilitation strategies are discussed before an analysis of the design of specific elements.

Learning Objectives:

Learning Objective 1:
Learners will be able to identify the goals (smooth, stable, long-lasting) and terminology of pavement design, consult relevant guidelines and standards, and perform a life cycle analysis.

Learning Objective 2:
Learners will be able to assist with geotechnical investigations, characterize materials, prepare and overlay existing pavements and explore mixture design and pavement mechanistic-empirical design (PMED).

Learning Objective 3:
Learners will be able to make soil support and subsurface preparations for rigid pavement, explore mixture content and pavement thickness, and analyze joint design.

Learning Objective 4:
Learners will be able to utilize non-destructive testing, perform pavement condition surveys, identify types of distresses and adopt preservation techniques and rehabilitation practices.

LUs: 6.5                                                                                              LU Type: LU|HSWs.

Prerequisites: Some experience with asphalt and concrete

Advance Preparation: None

Program Level: Intermediate
