Concrete Pavement Design Fundamentals [CPEE]

Tue 24 May, 2022

FINAL PLACES FILLING FAST FOR CPEE CONCRETE PAVEMENTS FUNDAMENTALS TRAINING.

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.

Over two half-days, the course will cover:

  • Background Design Systems
  • Environment Considerations
  • Subgrade Evaluation & Subbase Design
  • Concrete Materials - Subbase & Base
  • Traffic Estimation
  • Workshop Exercise - Traffic
  • Thickness Design
  • Design of Lightly Trafficked Pavements
  • Joint Design and Layouts
  • Workshop (Optional) – 3.00pm-4.00pm

ASCP Members receive a 15% discount

Non-members receive one year's free ASCP Membership ($176 value).

ASCP Forum (F2F/Online) – Innovation, Sustainability & Low Carbon Concretes: Can We Achieve In Pavements? – 31 May 2022

ASCP Forums
Sydney (West Ryde)
Tue 31 May, 2022

Innovation, Sustainability, Low Carbon Concretes: How can we achieve in Pavements – has become a keenly anticipated event for 2022. The Australian cement and concrete sector has a long history of reducing its CO2 emissions having delivered a 25 per cent reduction since 2000 [VDZ 2022] being a critical material input for durable and cost effective concrete pavements.

The goal for this forum is to bring together all actors within the concrete pavement supply chain and understand the challenges, drivers, tools and possible pathways towards decarbonising cement, concrete and accordingly the competitive advantage of concrete pavements by 2050.

The following  list of impressive speakers and topics are:

  • Craig Heidrich, Welcome
  • Ross Guppy National Technical Specification Project (Austroads)
  • Ken Lunty Pavement Sustainability Assessment (Arcadis)
  • Brook Hall Sustainability Assessment Tool for pavements (ARRB)
  • Jason Nairn VDZ Report – Road Map to Net Zero 2050 (CCAA)
  • Lunch Break (30 mins)
  • Jason Chandler Innovation Process (Boral)
  • Justin Moss Better Shared Path Design (Arcadis)
  • Craig Heidrich  Landscape for SCM Contribution to Net Zero (Craig Heidrich, ASAA, ADAA)
  • Stephen Rae NACoE Project S51: Suitability of the Use of Recycled Aggregate in Concrete (TMR)
  • Frank Knippers  TBC (Holcim)
  • Sam Henwood State Road Update (TfNSW)

Registrations for the event are open.
