Concrete Pavement Design Guidance Notes

This book provides a guide to the design of concrete pavements which summarises current best practice. Following an overview of the theory involved, the authors detail optimum design techniques with a focus on highway and infrastructure projects. Worked examples and calculations are provided to describe standard design methods, illustrated with numerous case studies. The authors provide guidance on how to use each design method complete with particular projects. Reference is made to UK, European and US standards and codes of practice including US AASHTO methods and guides. The chapters cover: surface slab systems; concrete bases and sub-bases; testing and specifications; concrete slab analysis methods; design inputs and assumptions; concrete pavement design methods; composite pavement design; joints; and detailing.
