The Development and Evaluation of Protocols for the Laboratory Characterisation of Cemented Materials
The study involved a laboratory assessment of two cemented materials to assess their strength, modulus and fatigue properties. The cemented materials consisted of a hornfels crushed rock and a quartzite siltstone bound with general purpose cement at…
Relative Pavement Wear of an Unbound Granular Pavement due to Dual Tyres and Single Tyres
This report presents the results of testing conducted on an unbound granular pavement with a thin bituminous surfacing using a variety of tyre types and half-axle loads applied using the Accelerated Loading Facility. It was found that the reference…
Testing Asphalt in Accordance with the Austroads Mix Design Procedures
This document provides advice for users designing asphalt mixes using the Austroads mix design procedures. The advice given should enable users to produce repeatable and valid results. The tests covered in this document are; bulk and maximum…
Assessment of Remaining Service Life of Pavements
This report documents the assessment of RSL of pavements where the RSL is confined in its estimation to the occurrence of the next major intervention either by rehabilitation or replacement. There are many measurable surface distress conditions,…
Fatigue Performance of Cemented Materials under Accelerated Loading: Influence of Vertical Loading on the Performance of Unbound and Cemented Materials
This research involved a performance assessment of two cemented pavement materials using the Accelerated Loading Facility (ALF) to simulate heavy axle loading. The assessment involved a number of axle loads from a standard half axle load of 40 kN to…
Technical Basis of Austroads Guide to Pavement Technology Part 2: Pavement Structural Design
The Austroads publication Guide to Pavement Technology, Part 2: Pavement Structural Design is intended to assist those required to plan and design new pavements. It was originally produced in 1987 as a result of review of the NAASRA Interim Guide to…
Safer Vehicle Purchases: Developing Cost-Effectiveness Estimates for Fleet Managers and Others Project Summary Report
The aim of this report is to quantify the potential economic benefits of fleet managers adopting safe vehicle purchasing policies. Benefits to society as a whole, as well as the benefits to the owners of commercial fleets, were estimated through…
Safer Vehicle Purchases: Developing Cost-Effectiveness Estimates for Fleet Managers and Others Part A: Crash Profiles and Risk Estimates
The aim of this report is to quantify the potential economic benefits of fleet managers adopting safe vehicle purchasing policies. Benefits to society as a whole, as well as the benefits to the owners of commercial fleets, were estimated through…
Safer Vehicle Purchases: Developing Cost-Effectiveness Estimates for Fleet Managers and Others Part C: Cost of Injuries and Property Damage in Crashes
The aim of this report is to quantify the potential economic benefits of fleet managers adopting safe vehicle purchasing policies. Benefits to society as a whole, as well as the benefits to the owners of commercial fleets, were estimated through…
Safer Vehicle Purchases: Developing Cost-Effectiveness Estimates for Fleet Managers and Others Part B: Injury Levels in Crashes
The aim of this report is to quantify the potential economic benefits of fleet managers adopting safe vehicle purchasing policies. Benefits to society as a whole, as well as the benefits to the owners of commercial fleets, were estimated through…
