We have partnered with the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) to secure a 15% discount on their range of online professional development. This includes the Guided Online Courses: self-paced over 6 or 12 weeks led by practicing engineers who are leading experts in their fields, the courses will help you refine skills that are immediately applicable to your job.
The main objective of this course is to familiarise practitioners with permeable pavements with focus on their design, construction, and maintenance. Permeable pavements are constructed of a variety of materials and within a diversity of settings. Historically, permeable pavements were intended only for light traffic areas on well-draining soils that would infiltrate direct rainfall. These systems can now be designed for much heavier loadings in a variety of soil conditions and receive runoff from contributing areas. Proper construction and maintenance are key to ensuring system function over the long-term.
The knowledge gained through this course will enable the participant to list the different types and materials of permeable pavements and systems, explain how permeable pavement systems function, design permeable pavements for a diverse range of settings and performance objectives, list the steps in the construction process, and identify the types of maintenance needed for various problems.
