Concrete Pavement Webinar Series

Thursday, April 02, 2 – 3:30 p.m. Eastern

Designing Concrete Parking Lots and Streets

Concrete pavements may be used in a variety of applications including streets and parking lots. By using suitable design techniques and appropriate details a designer can develop an economic and sustainable concrete pavement cross section that will perform for many years. This seminar will provide instruction on how to design and detail concrete pavements used in streets and parking lots by considering the traffic loads, soil conditions, concrete properties, and resulting pavement stresses.

Thursday, April 09, 2 – 3 p.m. Eastern

Designing Concrete Industrial Pavements

Concrete paving for heavy industrial and trucking facilities has many similarities to other types of concrete pavements; however, service distinctions may include slower traffic speeds and zones with multi-directional flow traffic. Industrial paving projects are usually larger in size than most parking lots, and may include warehouses, factories and truck terminals. The scale of these projects and the extreme traffic loads generally justify more rigorous design attention than typical of parking lots. This session will identify the differences in design and construction for industrial concrete pavements.

Soils 101: What to Know for a Successful Paving Project

The characterization and proper handling of soils for any paving project is vital to meeting the long-term performance expected from the pavement. Therefore, it is important to establish a thorough and effective geotechnical investigation that properly informs the design and construction processes. This webinar will explore pertinent aspects of soil characterization for all paving projects.

Thursday, April 23, 2 – 3 p.m. Eastern

Concrete Pavement Jointing and Details

One of the most important details of concrete paving is the proper timing and placement of joints to relieve tensile stresses that develop immediately after paving. The purpose of this webinar is to cover the proper design and construction of joints in concrete pavement. Proper joint design and construction will help ensure that a concrete pavement will perform as intended and reach or exceed its design life. This webinar will cover the most common types of joints used for concrete pavement applications and when and how they should be placed.

Thursday, April 30, 2 – 3 p.m. Eastern

Materials and Construction Specifications for Concrete Pavement Projects

The purpose of this webinar is to cover the proper development of a Materials and Construction Specification for a Concrete Pavement Project. The Materials and Construction Specification is a critical document, as it communicates the design engineer’s requirements for the proper materials and construction techniques for a concrete pavement project. A well-developed specification will result in more competitive bids, and less problems on the job.

Thursday, May 07, 2 – 3 p.m. Eastern

Concrete Street and Parking Lot Maintenance and Repair

All pavements will require maintenance and repair during their lifetime. However, understanding when maintenance should occur, and the types of repair required are important to be both economical and meet the pavement’s performance criteria. This presentation will teach how to assess the distresses observed and cover the various maintenance techniques for concrete pavement repair.

Thursday, May 14, 2 – 3 p.m. Eastern

Concrete Overlays of Existing Asphalt Surfaced Streets and Parking Lots

The performance life of asphalt surfaced parking lots can be extended by placing a bonded concrete layer on top of the existing asphalt. This technique has been used for many years for highway, street and parking lot pavements but still engineers and owners are unfamiliar with the process. This session will cover the publication entitled the Guide to Concrete Overlays of Asphalt Parking Lots and demonstrate the steps necessary to properly design and construct a concrete overlay.

Concrete Trail Design

A properly designed and constructed concrete trail can be a sustainable amenity for any community. Recently, the Guide to Concrete Trails by the National Concrete Pavement Technology Center was published to provide guidance for design and construction of paved concrete recreational trails, including those for biking, running, and walking, and of other pathways such as cart paths on golf courses. This session will review the guide with an emphasis towards improving the transportation and recreation opportunities of the general public through trail development.

Designing Pervious Concrete

Pervious concrete pavement is considered a best management practice by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and is a recommended solution to reducing runoff in the LEED Green Building Rating System. Pervious concrete pavement is ideal for parking areas, sidewalks, patios, tennis courts, roads and driveway. This one-hour webinar provides an introduction to designing a pervious concrete pavement infiltration system.

Maintenance Guidelines for Pervious Concrete

Because pervious concrete pavement is part of a designed stormwater management system, maintenance differs from what is typically done on conventional pavements. Maintenance and cleaning are the owner’s responsibility. Awareness of maintenance requirements by the owner, and strict adherence to scheduled maintenance activities are critical to ensuring the longevity of pervious pavement systems.
