HauL Road Design - NEW COURSE

Haul Road 74031915 Colour 400Launching on the 4th June CPEE is pleased to announce our latest technical one day course, 'Road Haul Design'. With the first course to be staged in Brisbane on June 4 in conjunction with Curtin University, the course has been specifically developed as a result of demand and is ideal for those engineers and engineering technologists working for Consultants, Mining Companies, Contractors and Federal, State, or local authorities impacted by, or involved in haul road development and use.

This Brisbane course will feature Mr Roger Thompson, Professor of Mining Engineering with Curtin University's Western Australian School of Mines who is the co-author of numerous peer reviewed publications in the field of mine haul road design. Roger has also run Australian ARRB mine-site and International workshops in mine road design construction and management. He is also the contributing author of the 2011 SME Mining Engineering Handbook Chapter on Road Design.

Roger will be supported by acclaimed expert and developer of CIRCLY Dr Leigh Wardle, Principal, Mincad Systems Pty Ltd. CIRCLY is a Windows-based package that can analyse a range of load types acting on layered elastic systems and is an integral part of the Austroads Pavement Design Guide used by authorities throughout Australia and New Zealand. Leigh is also co-author of the recently released Heavy Duty Industrial Pavement Design Guide – a guide that reflects best practice in the design of new construction and rehabilitation of industrial pavements.

The introduction of this course opens up yet another specialised area for furthering staff development and workplace expertise not available anywhere else.

Perth will then host this course on the 25th September with other venues and dates to be announced.
