Pavement Management using GIS

Pavement Management using GIS

Municipal agencies, roadway agencies, large shopping malls and airport agencies spend millions of dollars managing their pavement assets. Effective management of these assets provide cost- effective solutions for agencies and extend the service life of these assets. In this workshop innovative concepts on pavement management are discussed. Topics include network definition, distress identification, field inspection procedures and the use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) for better management of pavement assets. Besides preparing attendees for a career in pavement management, the workshop also provides engineers and maintenance supervisors with the basics of pavement management, data collection techniques and advanced computer-based methods using spreadsheets and GIS software. This 3 day workshop will benefit both recent transportation engineering graduates as well as entry/mid-level municipal engineers, transportation engineers, transportation maintenance supervisors and airport engineers or facility maintenance supervisors.

Date: TBD Summer 2019

Workshop Duration: 3 days

Course Fee: $1000

Introduction to Mechanistic Pavement Design

Introduction to Mechanistic Pavement Design

Until recently, pavement designs for roads, parking lots and airports are carried out using empirical methods such as AASHTO 1993 pavement design guide. This workshop will introduce municipal, county, consultant engineers and technicians to the most recent practice on current pavement design methodologies including the AASHTO 1993 Empirical Design and the more recent design approach outlined in the Mechanistic-Empirical Pavement Design Guide (MEPDG). The workshop will cover the following topics: Philosophy of the current empirical design guide, how to conduct a sensitivity analysis of stiffness and thickness on stress/strain response and understand its implications on design using mechanistic design fundamentals, conduct mechanistic-empirical (Asphalt Institute/PavementME) and empirical (AASHTO) flexible and rigid pavement designs. This 2 day workshop will benefit both recent transportation engineering graduates as well as entry/mid-level municipal engineers, transportation engineers, transportation maintenance supervisors and airport engineers or facility maintenance supervisors.

Date: TBD Summer 2019

Workshop Duration: 2 days
