Webinar Overview:

As traffic loads have increased and infrastructure funding has remained stagnant, the need for improved pavement performance has grown more acute.  Fortunately, new technologies, materials, and design methods are available to help meet these challenges.  One of the most promising technologies is the optimization of flexible pavement design using specialized geogrids.  This technology can greatly improve the performance and cost-effectiveness of flexible pavements, in terms of both initial construction cost and life cycle costs.


This webinar presents the concepts underlying the optimization of flexible pavement designs, as well as the required performance validation testing and design practice for successful implementation.  The design method presented is in full compliance with AASHTO guidance for flexible pavement design methodology, and the supporting empirical research has been reviewed by leading authorities in pavement design and geosynthetic pavement applications.
