Parking Lot Design: Elements of Design (RV-10903AW)
This course presents the economic analysis and structural design of parking lots. This course will introduce participants to economic, technical and engineering related aspects of parking lots. Topics covered include an introduction to the types of parking lot pavements and engineering economic analysis of parking lots and parking lot pavements. This is followed by the structural design of flexible pavement systems and the structural design of Portland cement concrete pavement systems for parking lots. This course will enable practitioners to gain a thorough insight into the fundamentals of the economic analysis and structural design of parking lots. Examples, sample calculations, and practical cases are included throughout this course.
Health, Safety and Welfare
At the end of this course, you will be able to:
Recognize the types of parking lots and parking lot pavement systems that are designed to support traffic loads.
Define the economic measures of the performance of parking lot pavement systems.
Evaluate a parking lot pavement competing with other pavement systems for implementation using engineering economic principles.
Describe the structure of flexible pavement systems for parking lots and how to provide a safe and comfortable driving surface to the public.
Describe flexible pavement structural design methodologies for parking lots.
Perform design calculations for flexible pavements using the AASHTO method to determine layer thicknesses and to ensure strength and durability.
Describe the structure of Portland cement concrete pavement systems for parking lots.
Describe Portland cement concrete pavement structural design methodologies for parking lots.
Perform design calculations for Portland cement concrete pavements using the AASHTO method to determine layer thicknesses and to ensure strength, durability, and control cracking, and to minimize susceptibility to moisture.
