Campus SCEE (NIT)
Programs PG
Session Spring Semester 2017
Course Title Pavement Rehabilitation & Management
Course Code CE-861
Credit Hours 3
Course Objectives Course Objectives: The course addresses all aspects of asphalt technology, successfully implemented road-way pavement structural design, hot mix design, maintenance and rehabilitation.

Course Outcomes: After completing this course the student should be able to:
  • locate and review information on periodic maintenance and road rehabilitation.
  • describe the role of periodic maintenance and pavement rehabilitation in the broad context of provision and management of a land transport system.
  • define technical terminology relating to periodic maintenance and rehabilitation of road pavements.
  • design an appropriate condition survey for an existing road pavement.
  • describe the methodology associated with the design of sprayed bitumen seal.;
  • explain the types of constraints that are applicable to periodic maintenance and rehabilitation works that result from design and construction issues.
  • describe the types of rehabilitation treatments in common use;
  • explain the role of structural overlays in the management of road pavements.
perform an economic evaluation of alternative treatments for a distressed pavement.
