Mechanistic Pavement Design - CIRCLY (Online)

This Workshop by live webinar is presented in two half day packages of two sessions each. The Workshop provides delegates with an understanding of the theoretical basis of mechanistic pavement design methods and is a hands-on course with each student having access to the CIRCLY program.

Description

Delivered via Zoom

This Workshop by live webinar is presented in two half day packages of two sessions each. The Workshop provides delegates with an understanding of the theoretical basis of mechanistic pavement design methods and is a hands-on course with each student having access to the CIRCLY program. 

The Workshop is offered for those who are well versed and practiced in pavement design, or who have completed any of the past CPEE two-day Flexible Pavement Design courses.

The CIRCLY Pavement Design software is the core of the flexible pavement design methodology defined by the AUSTROADS Guide to Pavement Technology– Part 2: Pavement Structural Design (the Guide) which is regarded as a primary reference source. CIRCLY is a proven design tool used over the past two decades in thousands of design applications world-wide. CIRCLY aids those involved in designing, constructing and using pavements.

CIRCLY 7.0 allows a major advancement in pavement design: a fully integrated system with superior design power & ease of use. CIRCLY 7.0 has many time saving features such as an automatic thickness design capability that can save hours on a typical design job and these will be elaborated on during the Workshop.

Primary Presenters

Leigh Wardle, Principal, Mincad Systems Pty Ltd

Leigh developed CIRCLY, the Windows-based package that can analyse a range of load types acting on layered elastic systems. Leigh joined CSIRO Division of Geomechanics in 1970 after qualifying in Applied Mathematics & Physics from Monash University. Over the 18 years of his career with CSIRO he worked on numerical stress analysis techniques. In 1988 Leigh formed Mincad Systems, a company specialising in numerical stress analysis for the civil and mining industries and since 1993 has specialised in pavement applications. In 2018, version 7.0 of Circly was released.

 Who should attend?

  • State road agency and local government engineers and managers with responsibilities in the provision, approval, design, construction or maintenance of roads & pavements. This to also include project managers and senior supervisors.

  • Consulting engineers with involvement in road and/or pavement projects.

  • Road & Pavement construction contractors, engineers, project managers and supervisors.

  • Local Government engineers, project managers and senior supervisors.

  • Technical operatives and Engineering graduates and “cadets” looking for specialist knowledge for career development.

Due to its practical nature, numbers are limited for this course so it is advisable that you register quickly to avoid missing out on its unique and targeted content.
