School or Department : School of Engineering
Student contribution band : Band 2
Grading basis : Graded
Version produced : 17 May 2022


Pre-requisite: CIV3703 or Students must be enrolled in one of the following Programs: GCNS or GDNS or MENS or PGCN or GCAE or MEPR


This course brings further understanding in pavement design and analysis. The aim of this course is to enable students to use the analytical methods in the design and analysis of various pavement types so that they will be prepared for involvements in various pavement projects. Moreover, students will learn about behaviour and performance of standard and marginal pavement materials, pavement maintenance and life-cycle cost analysis.

This course presents various analytical/computer tools for the design and analysis of various heavy-duty pavements. The course develops the principles and techniques of pavement design and analysis to the post graduate level. More advanced concepts are explored in the areas of pavement material characterisation, mechanistic pavement design, pavement evaluation and pavement maintenance.
