Don’t miss ACPA’s Roadway Concrete Pavement Design Workshop, May 14 and 15, 2014 at ACPA Headquarters in Rosemont, Illinois. This course will provide practical training on concrete pavement thickness design for roadways. This course presents practical information about pavement design, while also linking pavement design theory and practice with pavement construction. Participants also will have the opportunity to discuss pavement design problems, as well as to do hands-on training with state-of-the-practice software and other tools.
About the Program
The focus of this workshop is concrete pavement design, but also will emphasize the interdependence of design and construction. Upon completing this workshop, participants will know which design software and tools to use for a given project and will be able to design better performing and more cost-efficient concrete pavements.
- ACPA’s Robert Rodden, P.E., will present pavement design fundamentals and in-depth training on concrete pavement design using real-world design challenges. 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, Rodden also provide hands-on training using ACPA’s roadway thickness design software (StreetPave and WinPAS), as well as other pavement design resources.
- Kelly Steeves, Leica Geosystems, who will cover recent and emerging construction equipment innovations.
- Ing. Juan Pablo Covarrubias, TCPavements, and Nigel Parkes, PNA Construction Technologies, Inc., who will cover the short-slab design approach using OptiPave™ system, as well as a demo of the software program.
Your Registration Includes $600 in Complimentary Software!
Participants of the workshop will receive complimentary copies of ACPA’s StreetPave 12 and WinPAS 12 software (a $600 value).
Professional Development Hours
ACPA will award up to thirteen (13) professional development hours (PDH’s) to participants who complete this workshop. The award of PDH’s is intended for states/provinces that allow self-reporting, but in all cases, participants interested in the award of PDH’s should check with local licensing organizations for specific requirements prior to registering and participating in this workshop.
Who Should Attend?
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. A basic understanding of concrete pavement design and construction methods is helpful to this workshop. Much of the discussion will be advanced and assume prior knowledge on common concrete pavement engineering factors and considerations.
