August Webinar: Part 2 Reinforced Rail Tracks- Review of Design Guidelines and Procedures

WHEN:              13th AUGUST 2020

TIME:                 3.00PM AEST



Following on from our first successful webinar on Geogrid Reinforced Rail Tracks, which reviewed various international/local test results,full scale field trials,monitoring results and discussion about performance parameters. This second webinar will focus on the design guides and design methods for geogrid railways around the world. It will also give an insight into some design procedures based on the latest findings and test results.

* Not to worry if you missed Part 1, see below for Encore details of Part 1 webinar.
