CE-862 Pavement Materials Engineering
Campus SCEE (NIT)
Programs PG
Session Summer Semester 2016
Course Title Pavement Materials Engineering
Course Code CE-862
Credit Hours 3-0
Course Objectives Course Objectives: This course has been developed to provide students with the needed knowledge to analyze and design flexible and rigid pavements. Upon successful completion of this course, the student will have gained knowledge in Pavement Performance, Material Characterization, Traffic Analysis, Pavement Analysis, Pavement Design

Course Outcomes: This course is aimed at providing the Civil Engineering students with basic understanding of the Highway Engineering materials and the basic and fundamental design concept of highway pavements structures. Students will be able to design and analyse flexible pavements in addition, they will be able to understand the basic elements of rigid pavement design. Students will be able to conduct a thorough analysis of stresses, strains and deflections developed by different axle configurations and loads in multilayer flexible pavement structures. Students will study the effect of both traffic and environment on pavement damage.
