Pavement Design: Guide to Pavement Technology Parts 2 and 4C (2017 Editions)

March 9, 2018

This webinar provides an overview of the major changes to the design of heavy-duty flexible pavements, including the new:
• axle-strain approach central to the mechanistic-empirical design method
• definitions of design traffic
• characterisation of cemented material and asphalt.

The potential structural contribution of lime-stabilised subgrades for flexible pavements, and minor updates to concrete pavement jointing details are also discussed.

The webinar was presented on 9 March 2018 by Dr Michael Moffatt.
