ABOUT

Picture 1.jpg

SPARC Hub is leading the effort to implement the intelligent compaction (IC) technology and make further advancements in IC across Australia. The Hub is organising a two-day online workshop on intelligent compaction in September 2021 targeting primarily the Australian construction industry. The workshop comprises a range of keynote speeches from world-renowned experts in various countries and panel discussions with industry experts and leaders with a view to advance the current stage of IC.

The first day of this workshop (29 Sept 2021, AEST) is devoted to the state-of-the-art intelligent compaction with an emphasis on new theoretical developments and emerging technology that can advance the current state of knowledge of IC, increase the accuracy and optimal use of in-situ tests and calibration methods, and improve the estimation of the properties of compacted pavement layers in real-time with a view to performance-based IC. The second day of the workshop (30 Sept 2021, AEST) is devoted to the state of the practice of IC with an aim to summarise the lessons learned around the globe on implementing IC technology including experiences in the implementation/development of IC specifications and cost-benefit analysis of IC.
