Friday 9 March 2018 | Online, 1pm – 2pm AEDT
In late 2017 Austroads published updated editions of the Guide to Pavement Technology Parts 2 and 4C.
The new editions present the latest practices and guidelines for the design of road pavements and reflect the implementation of a large number of successful Austroads research projects.
The fourth edition of the Guide to Pavement Technology Part 2: Pavement Structural Design is the most significant update to pavement design processes in a decade.
This webinar will provide an overview of the major changes to the design of heavy-duty flexible pavements, including the new:
- axle-strain approach central to the mechanistic-empirical design method
- definitions of design traffic
- characterisation of cemented material and asphalt.
The potential structural contribution of lime-stabilised subgrades for flexible pavements, and minor updates to concrete pavement jointing details will also be discussed.
Minor updates to Guide to Pavement Technology Part 4C: Materials for Concrete Road Pavements will also be presented.
The webinar will provide you with an overview of the key changes to Parts 2 and 4C,and will be particularly useful for practitioners dealing with the design of heavy-duty flexible pavements and the supply of materials for these pavements.
Join in a live Q&A with our presenter to ask questions about the recent updates to the Guides.
Presented by Dr Michael Moffatt
