Concrete and Pavement Design Principles
The owner’s expectations and translating them to design criteria
• Support systems (subgrade/base/subbase) and
• Loading and traffic characterization
• Concrete characteristics: curling, shrinkage, load and fatigue capacity
• Impact of reinforcement (rebar or fibers) on the system
• Managing discontinuities like joints and cracks
• Interaction of design variables to understand the need for a systems approach
Modeling methodologies and design guidelines
Design optimization and managing design and construction risks
Exterior Concrete Pavement Design
Design considerations for over-the-road traffic
Common design methodologies (Pavementdesigner.org, ACI 330, AASHTO)
Optimizing pavement designs
Ensuring serviceability and performance beyond structural design criteria
Construction and acceptance
• Entrance/exit route to facility
• Car parking area
• Over-the-road truck trafficked areas
• Odd loading

Type of facilities, traffic types, and performance requirements
ACI 360 Design Guide
Jointing and joint fillings
Staying out of the Courthouse Zone
The “Jointless” Trend
Construction and acceptance (technologies)
• General warehouse (reinforced vs unreinforced)
• Refrigerated distribution facility
• Odd industrial loading
Concrete and Pavement Maintenance and Sustainability
Slabs-on-ground maintenance and repairs
Exterior pavement maintenance and rehabilitation
Life cycle cost analysis (design comparison considering economics and risks)
• User cost (maintenance, down time, equipment repairs, etc.)
• Life cycle assessment and rating frameworks
• Pervious pavements

Feng Mu, P.E., Ph.D. Engineer at PNA Construction Technologies
Dr. Mu is a licensed professional engineer in Texas, who holds a doctorate in Pavement Engineering and a master in Geotechnical Engineering. He has over 15 years of experience in concrete paving, research and engineering, including developing optimized paving solutions for roadway, commercial and industrial paving projects, and analyzing their life cycle costs. Dr. Mu has authored many peer-reviewed technical papers, with high recognition or award. He currently serves on the Pavement Maintenance Committee of the Transportation Research Board (TRB) of the National Academies. He is an active member of the American Concrete Institute (ACI) 330 paving committee. He is also the cochair of the Pavement Design Committee of the American Concrete Pavement Association (ACPA).
Engineering Manager at PNA
Mr. Rodden has dedicated his entire career to concrete pavements and slabs-on-ground. Through his research while earning bachelor and master of science degrees in Civil Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Mr. Rodden discovered his love of concrete materials and flatwork. His nine years of experience with the American Concrete Pavement Association (ACPA) focused on assisting engineers and contractors with project designs and details, responding to technical service inquiries, and developing publications and tools to support the industry. Prior to joining PNA, Mr. Rodden served dual roles as the executive director of the International Society for Concrete Pavements (ISCP) and as a research engineer at LafargeHolcim’s global research center in France. Through these efforts, he has contributed over 1,000 pages of published text, provided consulting services, and lead hundreds of presentations and discussions around the world on all aspects of concrete flatwork, including design, materials, construction, performance, preservation, and life-cycle cost analysis.
