Description


Delivered via Zoom

This course by live webinar presented in two half day packages of two sessions each will briefly review the types of stabilisation before more detailed presentations on types of binders, material characteristics, design and mix detailing, with sessions on specifying and case studies for practical outcomes. A feature of this Course is its significant practical and project-based content which aims to provide advice on road stabilisation solutions.

The use of stabilisation technology for stabilising and recycling of materials for pavement construction & rehabilitation is widely accepted as a cost-effective method of improving long term performance and reducing whole-of-life costs of modern, heavily trafficked pavements.

This course by live webinar presented in two half day packages of two sessions each will briefly review the types of stabilisation before more detailed presentations on types of binders, material characteristics, design and mix detailing, with sessions on specifying and case studies for practical outcomes. A feature of this Course is its significant practical and project-based content which aims to provide advice on road stabilisation solutions.

Overall the course will include discussion on the types of various stabilising binders used in road construction, their properties, manufacture, and chemical reactions during the stabilisation process and safety considerations associated with their use. The types of binders described are lime, cement, cementitious pozzolans, bitumen, chemical and synthetic polymers.
