Stabilisation Fundamentals (1 Day)

This short Course is ideal for those seeking a working understanding on stabilisation and is suitable for engineers and engineering technologists, project managers and senior supervisors and operations personnel working for federal, state, or local government, consultants and contractors.

Description

Overview:

The use of stabilisation technology for stabilising and recycling of materials for pavement construction & rehabilitation is widely accepted as a cost-effective method of improving long term performance and reducing whole-of-life costs of modern, heavily trafficked pavements.

This Course will briefly review the types of stabilisation before more detailed presentations on types of binders, material characteristics, design and mix detailing, with sessions on specifying and case studies for practical outcomes. A feature of this Course is its significant practical and project based content which aims to provide practical advice on road stabilisation solutions.

Overall the Course will include discussion on the types of various stabilising binders used in road construction, their properties, manufacture, and chemical reactions during the stabilisation process and safety considerations associated with their use. The types of binders described are lime, cement, cementitious pozzolans, bitumen, chemical and synthetic polymers.

Topics Covered:

  • Setting the scene: Types of Stabilisation Undertaken
  • Binder Types  (Review)
  • Material Mix Design
  • Structural Design of Insitu Stabilised Pavements
  • Design Methodology
  • Stabilisation of Unsealed Roads
  • Lime Stabilisation of Subgrades
  • Foamed Bitumen Stabilisation
  • AustStab/ARRB Accreditation
  • Open Forum

 Payment

Payment is required 14 days from date of invoice. All payment must made prior to commencement of course.
