About this Unit
This unit focuses on two key aspects of highway infrastructure design, namely, the bridge superstructure design and the foundation soil preparation prior to construction of the highway pavement. It aims to provide students with specialised knowledge in bridge loading and structural design, methods to deal with soft and weak grounds, and building of earth embankments to support the highway pavement. These aspects will be discussed in relation to Australian design codes.
