Course on Design and Construction of Sustainable Concrete Pavements @ IIT Madras [Dec 9-13]: Applications Open!


Concrete pavements last long, economical and offer a cost-effective solution that consumes minimal materials, energy and other resources for construction, maintenance, and rehabilitation activities over its lifetime. The quest for long-life concrete pavements necessitates a better understanding of the factors influencing the design and construction that affect both the short-term and long-term concrete pavement performance, timing of maintenance treatments and the life cycle cost.
This 5-day course will address the structural design of sustainable concrete pavements, design of joints, pavement performance measures, pavement failure mechanisms and theoretical models for the analysis of rigid pavement systems. The course will provide state-of-the-art information regarding the analysis and design of jointed concrete pavements. The participants will have several opportunities to interact with the instructor through classroom discussions, assignments and quizzes.
Course participants will gain in-depth knowledge through lectures and hands-on design tutorials. Also, case studies and assignments will be shared to stimulate the research motivation of participants.
