Free Webinar on Intelligent Compaction by ARRB and The Transtec Group
As a part of the Australian NACOE research efforts om Intelligent Compaction (IC), ARRB and The Transtec Group will conduct a free webinar on IC and the summary for the IC workshop and field demo held in SW Queensland, Brisbane, Australia from June 3-4, 2019. The webinar will be held on Jul 02, 2019 at 12:00 PM AEST (Australian eastern time zone). The registration link is here. The followings are further details.
NACOE – Introduction to Intelligent Compaction (IC)
Join us for a webinar on Jul 02, 2019 at 12:00 PM AEST.
Compaction is one of the most important processes in roadway construction. It is necessary in order to attain high quality and uniformity of pavement materials, which in turn better ensure long-lasting performance. In this webinar, the presenters will introduce Intelligent Compaction (IC), which refers to the compaction of road materials, such as soils, aggregate bases, or asphalt pavement materials, using modern vibratory rollers equipped with an integrated measurement system, an onboard computer reporting system, GPS based mapping, and optional feedback control. IC rollers facilitate real-time compaction monitoring and timely adjustments to the compaction process by integrating measurement, documentation, and control systems. IC rollers also maintain a continuous record of color-coded plots, allowing the user to view plots of the precise location of the roller, the number of roller passes, and material stiffness measurements.
Our two presenters are Dr. George K. Chang, P.E., Director of Research, The Transtec Group, USA (also President of International Society for Intelligent Construction – www.IS-IC.org) and Dr. Jeffrey Lee, Ph.D., CPEng, F.IEAust Principal Engineer, Australian Road Research Board.
This is part of the NACOE P105 project which looks into the implementation of the IC technology. Results from a recent field demonstration conducted in June 2019 will also be presented.
Participants please note – the session will commence at 12 pm Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST). There may be time zone differences that apply. It is recommended that you connect to the webinar 15 minutes prior to allow sufficient time for potential connection delays.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
