Associated with  Tasmania


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.
