SYNOPSIS

Pavements are unique structures; as these structures are designed to fail within a certain time frame. Unlike other structures which are designed to a particular load capacity, pavements are instead required to function within a particular time-frame. Geogrids have been used for decades to stabilise unbound pavement materials and improve the trafficking capacity and indirectly the pavement life.

Geogrid stabilised pavements have been shown to improve pavement life in the order of three to six times compared to pavement of equal thickness, which has obvious economical and practical benefits. This presentation provides an introduction to designing pavements incorporating stabilisation benefits and the background research used to develop our understanding of stabilisation mechanisms.


BIODATA OF SPEAKER

Speaker 1 – Mahesa Bhawanin is a graduate from the School of Engineering of the University of Aberdeen, where he obtained both his bachelor's degrees (Civil & Environmental)  and post-graduate qualification in 1973 and 2010.
 
Joining the Tensar regional office in Malaysia in mid-2016 as a Design Engineer, his main responsibilities centred around design and technical support for the Asia Pacific region. Since then, the role has expanded into a technology-centric role, raising the awareness of geosynthetic applications for the purposes of ground improvement, soil stabilisation and soil reinforcement. His expertise lie in the design of stabilised temporary platforms, access roads for heavy plant operations in soft-ground as well pavement optimisation with empirical and mechanistic-empirical design methods.
 

Speaker 2 – Piotr Mazurowski – A Professional Civil Engineer specialized in road technology.
 
In 1999, he graduated Technical University of Gdańsk, Poland, gaining a degree of M. Sc. Eng. in Highway Engineering specialty. For 17 years, he worked for DROTEST Road Engineering Office, a partner of Tensar International in Poland, first as an Area Civil Engineer and then as a Technical Director. Since September 2016, he works for Tensar International as an Application Technology Manager for Pavement Optimisation for Europe, Middle-East and Africa.
