Concrete Pavement Design Fundamentals (Online)

Intended to inform on the principles & practices involved in concrete pavement design, the course program will closely follow the content in the appropriate Chapters of the Austroads Guide to Pavement Technology – Part 2: Pavement Structural Design and Part 4C: Materials for the Concrete Pavements, which are used as the principal references.

Description

Delivered via Zoom 

Intended to inform on the principles & practices involved in concrete pavement design, the course program will closely follow the content in the appropriate Chapters of the Austroads Guide to Pavement Technology – Part 2: Pavement Structural Design and Part 4C: Materials for the Concrete Pavements, which are used as the principal references.

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.

Appropriate joint types and their design are key elements and will be discussed in detail.

Primary Presenter

Justin Moss – Technical Director (Pavements), Arcadis & President ASCP

Justin’s experience encompasses most facets of pavement engineering, including rigid pavements, flexible pavements, asphalt, sprayed sealing, materials technology, pavement condition and strategy development in both operational and research contexts. As ARCADIS’ national Technical Director (Pavements), Justin has presided over the growth of one of the largest non-government Pavement Design team, training initiatives, detailed designs and strategic investigations. Additionally, Justin was appointed President of the Australian Society of Concrete Pavements (ASCP) in April 2019 and also holds the position of Director, International Society for Concrete Pavements Inc. Whilst at Roads and Maritime Services as Supervising Pavement Engineer Rigid Pavements, he was responsible for developing and promoting technical expertise in rigid pavement design and construction in order to deliver improved road pavement performance, minimise life‐cycle costs and manage current and future technical risk in RMS.

 Who should attend?

  • State road agency and local government engineers and managers with responsibilities in the provision, approval, design, construction or maintenance of concrete 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.
