Content and learning outcomes
The coures is based on the lectures and laboratory sessions on the following topics:
- State-of-practice structural design of flexible pavements
- Functional properties of pavement materials
- Mechanics-based pavement performance prediction approaches
- Impact of climate change on infrastructure
Intended learning outcomes
After the course, the student shall:
- have sufficient knowledge of numerical and experimental tools for pavement structural design and performance prediction, to be able to apply them for pavement structural and material design optimizations.
- have a systematic knowledge of material and loading factors affecting pavements performance in the field.
- have an up-to-date knowledge regarding emerging approaches to pavement design and performance prediction.
Literature and preparations
Master degree or equivalent basic eligibility to PhD studies in engineering
The course literature is decided before each course round. The literature is announced in the course program.
Examination and completion
If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.
- INL1 - Hand in assignment, 3.0 credits, grading scale: P, F
Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.
The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.
Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination
Opportunity to raise an approved grade via renewed examination
- All members of a group are responsible for the group's work.
- In any assessment, every student shall honestly disclose any help received and sources used.
- In an oral assessment, every student shall be able to present and answer questions about the entire assignment and solution.
