Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

The American Concrete Pavement Association (ACPA) will hold a Roadway Concrete Pavement Design Workshop on May 14-15 at its headquarters in Rosemont, IL. The program provides practical training on concrete pavement thickness design while linking pavement design theory and practice with pavement construction. Participants also will have the opportunity to discuss pavement design problems as well as doing hands-on training with state-of-the-practice software and other tools. Discussions will cover common jointed plain concrete pavement (JPCP) thickness design methods for over-the-road traffic and how these methods compare; types of concrete pavement overlays and concrete overlay design and more. With a solid foundation of these key considerations, participants receive hands-on training using ACPA's roadway thickness design software (StreetPave and WinPAS), as well as other pavement design resources.

This course is ideal for pavement design professionals, engineers, consultants, contractors, professors and other instructors, and other industry professionals who may have an interest in pavement design and/or the benefits and effects of proper pavement design on other aspects of pavement construction.
