CPEE is back for 2023 with a face-to-face learning opportunity presented in collaboration with AustStab.
The Stabilisation Fundamentals course will be presented by Geoff Webb in Melbourne on 14 February.
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.
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.
The Austroads Guides to Pavement Technology – Part 4D, Stabilised Materials, Part 4E, Recycled Materials, Part 4L, Stabilising Binders, and Part 6: Unsealed Pavements as well as the AustStab Pavement Recycling and Stabilisation Guide are used as the key references.
CPD hours are also attributed to this course.
