Justin Moss’s paper titled “Pavement flexural fatigue capacity, and the influence of mix charging sequence” has won the Eldon J Yoder Award for Best Paper at the ISCP Conference last week.The paper was written on a project that Justin undertook as part of the Advanced Concrete Technology Course conducted through Cement Concrete Aggregates Australia by the Institute of Concrete Technology UK. The research component was funded under the RTA’s Technology Development Program.Justin’s work extended previous overseas research which indicated that you can gain significant benefits in mix characteristics (especially strength) merely by varying the charging sequence. Justin’s work introduced several advancements including demonstration of substantial benefits in flexural fatigue performance from the modified charging sequence. He did this by testing fatigue specimens in accordance with ASTM C1550 which was developed by Dr Stefan Bernard of Technologies in Structural Engineering (TSE) here in Sydney.
