PD Workshops
SYDNEY, New South Wales 2000

The course is intended as an overview into the online operating environment of AustPADS, and to give delegates confidence in commencing designs using it.
Austroads' pavement design software, AustPADS, conducts advanced mechanistic analysis of the response-to-load of road pavements.

The AustPADS user interface and the underlying analysis engine APADS were developed by ARRB Group for Austroads.

The analysis engine is based upon a finite element method model and software developed by Dr Markus Oeser whilst at the University of New South Wales.
