Flexible pavements are composed of a bituminous concrete surface with a high quality subbase. concrete that could be either reinforced or non-reinforced. Flexible pavement on airfields should be limited to areas that are not subjected to jet fuel spillage and jet blast. Flexible pavements are generally used on taxiways, runway interiors, shoulders and overruns.
This 7 hour course will discuss the design and construction of Flexible pavements. The subbase and base characteristics will also be discussed. Examples of calculation are given in the text which aid the reader in the various calculations associated with flexible pavement design.
This course can be used by anyone with an interest in runway design, airport design and planning, roadway design, structural and materials engineering. This course is also perfect for those individuals working in the construction materials testing fields that utilize the test methods that are discussed in the text. After reading this course the student will know the basic information regarding Airfield Flexible Pavement Design.
The course materials are based solely on the Army Corps of Engineers Engineer Manual “Airfield Flexible Pavement Design” as found on the website of the Army Corps of Engineers.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
