Webinar: Appropriate Use of Marginal and Non-standard Materials in Road Construction and Maintenance
  • Publication no: WEB-T335-18
  • Published: 17 July 2018

This webinar, presented on 17 July 2018, outlines ways to optimise the use of marginal and non-standard materials and gain best value from the successful performance of standard materials.

It covers:

  • applying a proposed assessment process to a wider suite of material types for use in sealed roads
  • future directions in this research
  • an evaluation framework for materials, including improvements through different forms of stabilisation
  • case studies that better assess the optimum use of non-standard road-building materials evaluated on a life-cycle cost basis.

The webinar was presented by Mick Savage, Tyrone Toole and Zia Rice
