Since water is one thing that can damage all pavements, most are designed to prevent water intrusion. However, a recent focus on resilience has spurred engineers to reevaluate how pavements perform in floods, storms, and even freeze-thaw cycles. This webinar presents cases of flexible pavements across the U.S. that have been subjected to high moisture due to inundation or spring thaw cycles. The cases demonstrate that flexible pavements can be successfully constructed to withstand climatic changes if appropriately designed and constructed, despite being subjected to high moisture conditions.
- Understand how moisture impacts pavement performance
- Evaluate design characteristics which can help flexible pavements be resilient to flooding and freeze/thaw
- Learn from case studies of flexible pavements which have performed in extreme climate conditions
