The course has no exercises

Study Objective:

The student will deepen his/her knowledge in the field of pavement mechanics, gain additional information about the behaviour of the pavement structure and subgrade under various design conditions. The student will become more familiar with the design of different types of pavement structures, or pavements designed for both normal road traffic conditions and special loads (e.g. aircraft, loaders, etc.).
