Continuing Education is a primary goal of PSCA. For a list of workshops and seminar topics that can be presented in your location, for in-house training, professional association education or to achieve learning units, contact the PSCA representative in our area.
This session is an overview of the ways structures can be built to attain LEED certification and encourage market transformation toward sustainable design. -Understand the importance of building with durable long-lasting traditional materials in innovative designs using Life Cycle Analysis tools. -Learn how to conserve storm water run-off by filtering it through pervious pavement. -Develop concepts for reducing albedo with light surfaces thus reducing energy consumption -Address climate change through material specifications for concrete.
Length: 1 hour, with Q&A
Pervious Concrete Pavements offer the advantage of managing stormwater at the source by infiltrating the precipitation immediately without overburdening the city storm sewer system and without wasting valuable land for detention ponds. This presentation illustrates many examples as well as design and installation methodology.
Length: 1 Hour, with Q&A
Present the elements of portland cement concrete pavement design from subgrade through the finished surface. Discusses the interactions between each element influences the final product.
Length: 1 Hour with Q&A
Haven’t built a concrete pavement in quite a while? New staff you want to train? A course for DOT and agency personnel, the course covers: concrete construction equipment, the best practices for slip forming PCCP pavements, working with contractors, weather concerns during concrete placement, and inspection of the project.
Length: 4 hours
This course covers the basics of Concrete Pavement Thickness Design. The ACPA software StreetPave will be demonstrated and practical examples given. This workshop covers important topics pertaining to the thickness for concrete pavements, including: concrete materials, underlying support layer strength; the types and causes of pavement distress; and the design process. Class exercises include how to: calculate wheel load damage; identify pavement distresses; and determine pavement thickness.
Length: 4 hours
Presents material selection methods based on ICRI Guidelines as well as surface preparation techniques. Offers suggested guideline specification language to assure sound, long-lasting repairs to concrete pavements for roadways, runways, and ramps.
Length: 1 hour with Q&A
If your existing asphalt or concrete pavement is in need of rehabilitation and you need a long life pavement solution, a concrete overlay is your answer. This workshop covers: types of concrete overlays, uses of concrete overlays, determining the best overlay solution for your existing pavement, concrete materials and properties, and construction. The ACPA software StreetPave will be demonstrated and practical examples given.
Length: 1 hour or 4 hours
