Bases and subbases for concrete pavements
Any organization’s bases and subbases for concrete pavements involves an overview of pavement types, layers, and their functions, and pavement failures.
A highway pavement is a structure made up of stacked layers of processed materials over the natural soil sub-grade, with the primary purpose of distributing vehicle loads to the sub-grade. The pavement structure should be able to provide an appropriate riding surface.
This course presents an overview of best practices for the design and construction of bases and subbases for concrete pavements and its effects on performance. It discusses rigid pavement layer configuration, design of the base and subbase as well as materials specifications for bases and subbases of concrete pavements. The construction as well as the cost of building bases and subbases of concrete pavements are also covered
The course will run through important criteria including rigid pavement layer configuration, basics of base and subbase design principles as well as the materials for bases and subbases of concrete pavements. Also, how to construct the concrete pavement base and subbase will be talked about.
