ARRB hosted an IPWEAvic Information Series Event on Wednesday 29th June.  Dr Robert Urquhart, Principal Scientist ARRB Group, gave a presentation covering the long term performance tests and construction performance tests commonly used for bitumen and PMB relating the standardes to everyday items from tomoato sauce, shoe heels to heineken beer!  This event was a great refresher for those who have not visited testing requirements since their university days and a terrrific knowledge booster for all Local Government Engineers.
