Delivered via Zoom
The materials content will however cover more information than is in the current Guide, as the selection of materials is critical to producing a road/pavement design that will deliver both structural and functional performance. Although predominately concentrating on unbound pavements, considerable time is allocated to designing bound pavements for light traffic as per Austroads Guide Chapter 12 – Design of Lightly-Trafficked Pavements.
Understanding and determining design traffic is fundamental to achieving appropriate structural thickness design for quality lasting bound flexible pavements. Workshop exercises will provide reinforcement to the learning.
