Mechanistic Design Workshops
In 2002 Professor Andrew Dawson from University of Nottingham (specialist in unbound granular pavements) ran an international workshop to point the way for future development of mechanistic methods for analysing and designing unbound granular pavement, (see details in 2002 heading below). The principles he outlined were state-of-the-art at the time but have stood the test of time, and have been followed by several NZ researchers since.
Every few years, a similar national workshop has been convened, open to all interested parties and the powerpoints prepared are presented below (sorted with most recent at the top).
