Webinar: Appropriate Use of Marginal and Non-standard Materials in Road Construction and Maintenance
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…
Design and Performance of Foamed Bitumen Stabilised Pavements
There is a need to improve the Austroads procedures for mix design and structural design of foamed bitumen stabilised (FBS) materials. This final report summarises the mix design test methods developed within the context of an Austroads mix design…
Appropriate Use of Marginal and Non-standard Materials in Road Construction and Maintenance
This report considers the use of marginal and non-standard materials in road construction and maintenance. It concludes that considerable evidence exists, both nationally and internationally, that supports the wider use of marginal and non-standard…
Webinar: Guidelines and Specifications for Microsurfacing
This webinar, presented on 14 June 2018, provides an overview of the updated Austroads microsurfacing guidelines and model specification. It covers: major changes to the microsurfacing guidelines and specifications related test methods materials and…
Guidelines and Specifications for Microsurfacing
Guidelines and Specification for Microsurfacing provides guidelines for the use of microsurfacing treatments in Australia. Microsurfacing is presently the only type of bituminous slurry surfacing applied in Australia. The document was produced by…
Webinar: Pavement Design - Guide to Pavement Technology Parts 2 and 4C (2017 Editions)
This webinar, presented on 9 March 2018, provides an overview of the major changes to the design of heavy-duty flexible pavements, including the new: axle-strain approach central to the mechanistic-empirical design method, definitions of design…
Webinar: National Performance-based Asphalt Specification Framework
This webinar, presented on 27 February 2018, provides an overview of a project Austroads is undertaking to identify gaps in current practice for the performance characterisation of asphalt mixes. The ultimate aim is to develop a harmonised national…
National Performance-based Asphalt Specification Framework

Part 4B of the Austroads Guide to Pavement Technology provides a recommended approach to the design and characterisation of asphalt mixes in Australia and New Zealand. However, the approach to asphalt mix design and performance characterisation…

Validation of Revised Austroads Sprayed Seal Design Approaches: Site Inspection

This report details investigations that were conducted to verify the new Austroads sprayed seal design guidelines.

To verify the appropriateness of the proposed basic voids factor (Vf), and the initial sealing design approach (and also to validate…

High Modulus High Fatigue Resistance Asphalt (EME2) Technology Transfer: Final Report

EME2 mixes are produced using a hard paving grade bitumen applied at a high binder content (approximately 6%). Compared to conventional asphalt bases with unmodified binders, EME2 asphalt is characterised by high stiffness, high durability, superior…
