Designing for Permeable Pavement Performance

June 26, 2015

Permeable pavements can be built to last…if you build them right. And the key to building for performance is designing to provide sufficient structural capacity to accommodate the anticipated vehicle loads and deal with stormwater flowing in and out of your roadways and parking lots.

Join David Hein, PE, for the third session in our Permeable Pavement Master Class Series exploring the design, specification, and construction elements that may negatively impact the performance of pavements, as well as the primary factors contributing to the long-term functional and structural performance of pavements (e.g., parking lots to highways).

This webinar will be available live on Wednesday, July 15, 11:00 am – 12:30 pm PDT / 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm EDT, and available on-demand after the live event. Register for the event by clicking the button below.

In this webinar, we’ll discuss the key design and construction features, maintenance considerations, and best practices that directly impact permeable pavement performance. Within this discussion, Hein presents photographs and case studies of real-world projects demonstrating the common problems associated with permeable pavement performance design and construction accompanied by examples of good (and poor) design and construction choices. Finally, we’ll discuss how to identify these potential issues in your permeable pavement design and construction and how to avoid them to better ensure the cost-effective use of your transportation investments.

Learning Objectives

Attendees can expect the discussion and education of the following learning objectives.

  • Understand the common design features important to the performance of permeable pavements.
  • Understand the common construction features important to the performance of permeable pavements.
  • Understand the design and recognition of specification and construction activities that can improve the performance of pavements.
  • Understand, communicate, and promote good design and construction practices.
