CPEE 601

Road Pavement Design

This Unit provides students with the opportunity to develop their critical analysis and communication skills as they attain advanced knowledge within the complex framework of empirical-mechanistic pavement design. The Unit will impart cognitive skills to enable students to think critically about the materials, processes and analytical tools employed by professional engineers in the design of pavement structures. Students will undertake a scaffolded learning process as they develop their design skills towards undertaking a major pavement design that requires the synthesis of the complex variables associated with a Greenfield pavement design. The Unit provides specialised technical and creative skills essential for future professional practice in the broad area of road pavement design.
