Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) is the main road paving material. More than 90% of roads and highways in North America are paved with HMA, therefore, many civil engineers work in the design, production, quality control/assurance, and construction of HMA. A successful design, production, and construction of HMA need significant knowledge, experience, and engineering judgement.

During the last decade, several developments in the asphalt industry have occurred. The most important developments in the design and testing of HMA include a new grading system for asphalt cement (Performance Grade- PG) and a new mix design method (Superpave). Although many agencies use these new methods, other agencies use the traditional design and testing methods or a combination of new and old systems. It is critical that HMA users, producers, and pavement engineers and technologists learn the recent developments in this area.

Who Should Attend
The course is intended for all engineers and technologists who work in the design, production, and quality control/assurance of HMA. Thi... [Read More]

Pavements are one of the main components of our road transportation and infrastructure systems. By daily expansion of road transportation systems and higher costs of construction, maintenance and rehabilitations of pavements, highway agencies are facing challenges to keep the serviceability of their pavements to an acceptable level. During the last two decades, the issue of proper design, high quality construction as well as optimum maintenance and rehabilitation of pavements had been the focus of highway agencies, contractors, consulting engineers, and researchers. With the relatively large investment involved in pavements, even a marginal improvement in managing this investment or in the technology involved, will affect very large absolute dollar saving. In addition to direct saving in capital costs and maintenance, the indirect benefits to the road users can be equally significant.

Objective
The main objective of this course is to provide participants with a thorough understanding of the important factors in pavement design and analysis. The focus will b... [Read More]

School/Trainer: EPIC Educational Program Innovations Center
Training Center(s)/Venue(s): Dorval, Edmonton, Calgary, Halifax, Mississauga, Ottawa, Regina, Richmond, Saint Johns, Winnipeg, Canada
  V

Modern retaining structures that support soils at slopes steeper than their angle of repose, are constructed of a broad range of materials, such as masonry, mass concrete, reinforced concrete, pre-cast concrete, timber, metal, and geo-synthetics. Retaining walls are classified based on their styles, such as gravity walls, semi-gravity walls, cantilever walls, counter-fort walls, crib walls, reinforced soil walls, sheet-pile walls and braced excavation. Regardless the type and material of an earth retaining structure, two requirements must be satisfied in the design, i.e., the external stability and internal stability under various loading and environmental conditions.

In this short course, the theoretical aspects of retaining structures are studied first, followed by the analysis and design of common earth retaining structures. Students will practice the analysis and preliminary design of common earth retaining walls.
