Although not my technical area of expertise, I have simplistically been playing in my head the idea of using higher strength concrete in our kerbing works to offset against ongoing damage.
We are in a ridiculously flat Council area, typical grade in the 0.2% range though much of our area, where small kerb failures and deflections result in reasonable length water ponding and hence community feedback/complaint.
You referenced some University of Sunshine Coast research, is this something which is been written up and presented in a manner which could possibly be shared. We would be keen to get a better understanding of the contributing factors in this conversation.
