This workshop is designed to provide a comprehensive knowledge of fundamental geotechnical concepts and principles used in the design and construction of resilient highways.
This comprehensive course has been meticulously crafted to offer participants an in-depth exploration of the multifaceted world of pavement engineering. Through a holistic approach, it aims to empower individuals with a profound comprehension of pavement design, management, preservation, and the strategic utilization of the Mechanistic-Empirical Design Guide (MEPDG) to foster the creation of resilient, cost-effective, and enduring road infrastructure.
This immersive workshop aims to provide participants with the essential knowledge and skills needed to implement effective road engineering best management practices for climate resilience. Over the course of five days, participants will delve into the scientific understanding of climate change, explore its impacts on infrastructure, and gain practical insights into adaptation measures.
The course will provide key methods, tools, and techniques used by best in class companies and practitioners in the construction supervision industry. The course is FIDIC focused and covers the roles and responsibilities of The Engineer, contract administration, and the dispute resolution process as prescribed by FIDIC.
This course will provide an overview of infrastructure sustainable finance and resilience investing with particular attention to projects and assets in the road sector. Global markets are currently evolving in response to consumer demand for better environmental and social governance, as well as proactively responding to climate change and decarbonization as addressed in the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
IRF held a practitioner-driven seminar on "Road System Resilience to Climate Change & Extreme Weather Events" in Goyang, Korea, on November 15-17, 2017.
Action is needed to diagnose systemic weaknesses and adapt transport systems to withstand expected climate impacts such as changes in rainfall, flooding, and sea-level rise as well as extreme weather events. This requires a better understanding of existing vulnerability assessment tools, cost-effective engineering measures and technologies all designed to ensure robustness, redundancy and resilience are designed into road networks.
