The focus of this workshop is concrete pavement design methods and details but construction means and methods and the interdependence between these means and methods and design also is a key theme. The first day consists of discussions on new concrete pavement and concrete overlay design methods, materials, and resources. The second day will cover joint layout, construction methods and tools, and inspection and testing, all tying back to design and how each affects the others. Upon completing this workshop you’ll know which design software and tools to turn to for a given project and be able to design better performing and more cost-efficient concrete pavements because of the knowledge and appreciation you will have for the construction side of the equation.
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. For more information visit: www.torontoworkshop.acpa.org.
