This course presents criteria for designing flexible pavements for roads, streets, walks, and open storage areas. State and county agencies have developed codes and regulations on criteria tailored to local needs in their jurisdiction. In most cases these agencies have approved sources of material as well as some stockpiled base and subbase material . These codes and regulations along with the potential for materials should be taken into consideration when planning roads, streets, walkways, and open storage areas.
We will be covering Army Corps of Engineers document "Flexible Pavements for Roads, Streets, Walks and Open Storage" chapters 1-4. In these chapters we will be discussing selection of materials, subgrade, and subbase courses, base course, pavements, and flexible pavement design.
