(PLEASE NOTE: This course is only available in ZAR)


The purpose of this course is to serve as a practical guide for the application of the general procedure for designing asphalt mixes as set out in Sabita Manual 35/TRH8: Design and Use of Asphalt in Road Pavements, published in June 2016 and revised in July 2021. The document strives to explain the design principles described in Sabita Manual 35 to ensure that designs prepared are optimal for their application in terms of resources of constituent materials, traffic and climate. This course will emphasise the key content of the manual, cautions on limitations of some procedures and compliance requirements and gives guidance on supplementary methods or procedures to enhance the design procedure. Also, where appropriate, some background is given on the principles adopted in the method for guidance, especially to practitioners with limited experience in the design of asphalt mixes. While the focus of this document will be on the general method of design of asphalt, it will also draw the user’s attention to special considerations that should be taken into account when designing warm mix asphalt, recycled asphalt, thin asphalt wearing courses, open graded asphalt, EME (i.e. high modulus asphalt) and stone-mastic-asphalt (SMA).

Who should attend?

This course targets newly qualified Civil Engineers. Technicians and Technologists who have limited pavement design experience
