Pavement engineering design is complete using standard guides and models, However effective engineering decisions are require to ensure the design meets specific aims that may include service performance, functional and structural requirements and out turn cost. Variables including the local environment, traffic predictions, materials, manufacturing and construction processes are critical in the application this design philosophy.
Existing material reuse, incorporation of waste and recycled materials ensures sustainability, however life cycle duration together with maintenance cost, determines the carbon foot print. These considerations are paramount in the design of cost effective and low environmental impact projects.
Kamen Engineering undertakes pavement design for:
- pedestrian pavements
- sporting fields
- residential and urban roadways
- freeways and heavily trafficked highway pavements
- container terminals
- hard stands .
Guidelines used for design include:
AUSTROADs - Guide to Pavement Technology Part 2 - Pavement Structural Design
AUSTROADs - Guide to Pavement Technology Part 5 - Pavement Evaluation and Treatment Design
INTERPAVE - The Structural Design of Heavy Duty Pavements for Ports and Other Industries
AC 150/5320-6G Airport Pavement Design and Evaluation
Kamen Engineering develops pavement construction design inclusive of associated work elements including geometrical, drainage and lighting elements. Designs are packaged to incorporate technical specifications, drawing and schedules issued 'for tender' and 'for construction' documents.
