Asphalt pavements are a pavement and surfacing alternative for the changing environments and increasing demands on the road pavement. These increasing demands requires all aspects of the asphalt construction to be addressed to ensure the expected design life is achieved.
There are a number of factors that impact the life of the asphalt, including the choice of treatment, quality of materials, operational aspects of construction, as well as traffic number, types of vehicle movements and vehicle types.
Acknowledging the importance of asphalt surfacing’s for the Australian road network, IPWEA-QNT in conjunction with a practical expert in the area of asphalt construction and failure review, is offering a one-day workshop to provide support for the practitioners and decision makers for the application of new asphalt and review of failed treatments.
This one-day workshop on asphalt will provide a practical overview of the following:
current types of asphalt mixes,
planning and preparation for asphalt paving,
transport of asphalt,
paver performance and screed operations,
and finished pavement properties.
This will assist designers, asset managers and practitioners in the placement of asphalt and provide participants with an understanding of the factors that may lead to application failures. The course will also assist in the formulation of yearly asphalt resurfacing programs and the diagnosis of failures. Content can be tailored to meet local needs.
Who should attend?
This workshop is primarily aimed at staff involved in the areas of road planning, design, construction and maintenance of roads including, but not limited to:
Types of asphalt mixes
Overview of the current asphalt laying practices
Paver performance and screed operations
Understanding risks – review of recent asphalt works
