Stabilisation Fundamentals training courses conducted by the Centre for Pavement Engineering Education (CPEE)

CPEE have advised that upcoming face-to-face short courses have been postponed until further notice. CPEE will reschedule these courses to later in the year to dates that will be determined in accordance with the changing situation and Government advice. Existing course registrations will be automatically transferred to the rescheduled course (or an alternative course). Alternatively, a full refund will be provided by CPEE if the new dates do not suit – please contact CPEE directly for further advice. This means that the Stabilisation Fundamentals courses scheduled for Parramatta on Thursday 26th March, Ipswich on Tuesday 31st March and Melbourne on Thursday 16th April 2020 have been postponed to a date to be advised and it is highly likely that further courses will be rescheduled.

Stabilisation Fundamentals – 1 Day Course

1 Day $885 inc GST with an early bird price of $796.50

This Course will briefly review the types of stabilisation before more detailed presentations on types of binders, material characteristics, design and mix detailing, with sessions on specifying and case studies for practical outcomes. A feature of this Course is its significant practical and project based content which aims to provide practical advice on road stabilisation solutions.

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.

  • Types of Stabilisation Undertaken
  • Relative Costs of Stabilisation
  • Binder Types
  • Characteristics of Materials
  • Material Mix Design
  • Structural Design of Insitu Stabilised Pavements
  • Construction Process & Pitfalls, Equipment & Design Detailing
  • Rehabilitation
  • Types of Specifications & Contracts
  • Case Studies and Open Forum

Issues associated with undertaking stabilisation works using techniques which are not consistent with recognised best practice will also be discussed. Learning will be enhanced from the reporting of the outcomes of various projects and developments. Case studies will underpin the material presented.
