Description

Delivered via Zoom

This course by live webinar presented in two half day packages of two sessions each 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 advice on road stabilisation solutions.

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.

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 Austroads Guides to Pavement Technology – Part 4D, Stabilised Materials, and Part 4L, Stabilising Binders, and the AustStab Pavement Recycling and Stabilisation Guide are used as the key references.

PLEASE NOTE: Hard copies of the AustStab ‘Pavement Recycling and Stabilisation’ and ‘Insitu Stabilisation Construction' Guides are available to course registrants by post, free of charge, by emailing AustStab at enquiry@auststab.com.au and providing a postal address prior to course.

Primary Presenters

Colin Leek, Principal Engineer Pavements

Colin Leek commenced his career in Local Government and become interested in pavements in the early 1980s.  During his long association with City of Canning, he introduced Insitu Foamed Bitumen Stabilisation into WA, and the use of recycled crushed concrete as a base material. During this time, he studied for a Master degree in Pavement Technology with Deakin University and undertook much research into pavement stabilisation. Due to his demonstrated interest in research, he was approached to join ARRB in 2008 in pavements research, and in 2010 moved to Curtin University where he undertook lecturing and high-level research into various road pavement activities including the use of plastics in asphalt and the fatigue properties of foamed bitumen as well as supervising PhD students.

He now works as a consultant but continues his commitment to the pavement profession by lecturing at UWA and proposing and supervising research projects for final year Engineering projects and PhD level students.
