Haul Road Design

The course will provide delegates with an understanding of the overall concepts & principles of Mine Haul Road Design. Mine consultants, contractors, truck fleet operators and personnel involved with design, construction and day-to-day operations and maintenance of mine roads will benefit from the course.

Description

Suitable for:

An intensive one day short course ideal for engineers and engineering technologists working for Consultants, Mining Companies, Contractors and Federal, State, or local authorities impacted by or involved in haul road development and use. It is ideal for those involved with heavy loaded non-highway roads, with specific emphasis on unpaved haul roads and their particular dynamics involving heavy equipment with very high pay-loads. The course will provide delegates with an understanding of the overall concepts & principles of Mine Haul Road Design. Mine consultants, contractors, truck fleet operators and personnel involved with design, construction and day-to-day operations and maintenance of mine roads will benefit from the course..

Overview:

This one day Course will introduce the principles of mine haul road design and will cover the philosophy of provision, road building material selection and characterisation, road-user (truck and traffic) requirements, fundamental geometric design concepts, structural (layerworks) design, sheeting (wearing course) selection and improvement. The Course will also introduce rolling resistance assessment methodologies and from a haul road maintenance perspective, haul road performance assessment and optimisation strategies, as a basis for designing or upgrading new or existing roads.

You will be introduced to the Haul Road Structural Design feature of CIRCLY 6.0.
