Flexible Pavement Design : Unbound - basic principles & practices (Online)

This course by live webinar is presented in two half day packages of two sessions each, with an optional workshop session. It will inform on the basic principles & practices involved in unbound flexible pavement design and the program will closely follow the content in the appropriate Chapters of the Austroads Guide to Pavement Technology – Part 2: Pavement Structural Design, which is used as the principal reference and a copy will be provided for each Delegate.

Description

Delivered via Zoom

This course by live webinar is presented in two half day packages of two sessions each, with an optional workshop session. It will inform on the basic principles & practices involved in unbound flexible pavement design and the program will closely follow the content in the appropriate Chapters of the Austroads Guide to Pavement  Technology – Part 2: Pavement Structural Design, which is used as the principal reference and a copy is provided at the Course for each Delegate.

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. This course focusses on unbound pavements and includes Case Studies and Exercises.

Understanding and determining design traffic is fundamental to achieving appropriate design for quality lasting unbound flexible pavements. Workshop exercises will provide reinforcement to the learning.

Primary Presenter

Ross Paul, Director, Ross Paul & Associates (RPA) 

In his career with VicRoads Ross worked in several Regions and Project Teams in various positions responsible for planning, design, construction and maintenance of roads. In 1988 he was appointed Surfacing Engineer followed in 1993 by the role of Manager - Pavement Services being responsible for leading a team for undertaking pavement investigation, design and related research and development projects. From 1998 he was Technology Transfer Engineer responsible for implementation of new technologies and research outcomes, development and review of technical specifications, and guideline documents including provision of technical advice on most aspects of pavement technology. Since 2003 Ross as the Director and Principal Consulting Engineer of Ross Paul & Associates, undertakes a wide range of pavement technology and road surfacing related projects for various clients.

 Who should attend?
