Fields of Practice: Civil Engineering Program
The aim of this subject is to develop students' technical competence in the analysis and design of road pavements as well as enhance professional practice-oriented skills. The ability to analyse and design different types of pavements together with their material characterisation, construction aspects, maintenance and management is considered necessary for those who would like to work in the field of road infrastructure and pavement design.
Students recognise that completion of this subject supports them to work in an internationalised world. The subject comprises lectures, active tutorials, collaborative learning sessions, detailed design group projects and individual tests, assignments and technical presentations. The group research project allows students to learn critical review of engineering documents, project reports and disciplinary research skills. The syllabus covers: an introduction to basic types of pavements, design traffic loading calculations, pavement materials, subgrade stabilisation, drainage systems, design of rigid and flexible pavements, pavement maintenance and management systems, and also comparison of pavement design methods.
