Delivered via Zoom
This Workshop by live webinar is presented in two half day packages of two sessions each, with an optional workshop session and 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
It 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.
The Workshop 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. It 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. Delegates will be introduced to the Haul Road Structural Design feature of CIRCLY 7.0, 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.

Dr Roger Thompson, Mineravia Consulting, Perth, WA
Roger has some 30 years industry and academic experience, with over 20 years in the field of mine haul road design, operation and management. He has undertaken numerous research and consulting assignments, centred on surface mining transportation and the provision, rehabilitation or improved design and management of mine haul roads for many of the world’s leading surface mining operations. He is also the lead-author of the definitive treatise on the subject - 'Mining Haul Roads - Theory and Practice' (Taylor & Francis, 2019), and co-author of numerous other publications in the field of mine haul road design. He has presented at Australian, ARRB, mine-site and International workshops in mine road design, construction and management.
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.
