Concrete Pavement Design and Maintenance with Concrete Alberta
The Cement Association of Canada, in partnership with Concrete Alberta, is pleased to present two consecutive days of Concrete Pavement Design and Maintenance Principles and Design Software Workshops.
This third installment of the Sustainable Roadways Series Kicks off in Red Deer, AB with an Owner’s perspective of selecting sustainable road designs and transitions through a review of the principle building blocks to achieve durable sustainable pavements. The second half of the day covers the approaches to developing a concrete maintenance plan and provides guidance on what to monitor and when to implement measures citing local examples including the 67 St Roundabout. We’ll close the day, with an outline from Alberta Transportation of what they want included in a concrete alternate pavement design submission. This year, speakers will include pavement project owners, as well as, members from the organizations that have conducted and authored a number of studies and publications on sustainable pavement design and who have provided input into the development and evolution of today’s pavement design software.
The second day’s workshop takes place in Edmonton and gives attendees the opportunity to kick the tires of some of today’s contemporary pavement design software. We start with a review of concrete pavement design details and their effect on the pavement thickness design. Next we’ll walk you through the thickness design process using tools such as Streetpave, PavementDesigner.org and AASHTOWare Pavement ME software programs to compare results. Come and see first-hand how easy these tools are to use!
We look forward to seeing you all at the workshops.
