The Australian Road
Research Board is hosting a two x two-day workshops on ARR2016 with a specific
focus on Austroads Guide to
Road Design Parts 5, 5a & 5b.
They will be delivered by Mark Babister and Bill Weeks in Brisbane on 30
April/1 May and Melbourn on 4/5 June.
designers and civil engineers with current best practice in road drainage design;
outlining application of “Australian
Rainfall and Runoff” to road drainage design, and;
drainage conditions can influence road design, road location.
There is a pre-conference workshop in front of the Floodplain Management Australia’s 2019 National Conference on Monday 13th May at the Hotel Realm, Canberra.
This one day course will be presented by the editors and authors of ARR and will cover the philosophy and application of ARR in urban catchments. The course is aimed at practitioners, managers, town planners and council engineering staff. The workshop will provide an overview of ARR but will focus on the application in urban areas. This workshop will include practical application via examples, open discussion and answers to questions. Importantly, this workshop is an opportunity for council officers and practitioners to discuss the objectives, the application and challenges of the new ARR Urban Book. An important part of the course will be the current philosophical objectives of the urban book and how we design and manage urban system in the future.
We would like to invite you to complete a survey on how Australian Rainfall and Runoff (2016) is being used and implemented. This research is being completed by UNSW honours research student Michele Guild and supervised by Dr Fiona Johnson. We are interested in the opportunities, barriers and limitations that are facing professional engineers in using ARR2016. If you use ARR we would appreciate you taking the survey. The consent and participant information form for the survey can be accessed via the survey directly https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/RHC78TM or downloaded from http://www.hydrology.unsw.edu.au/survey-on-australian-rainfall-runoff-2016

In conjunction with Engineers Education Australia the Water Panel is promoting the upcoming two-day ARR training events that are occurring in Sydney on 21/22 May 2018. Places are limited, and this is a paid event run by EEA, so check out the summary here but otherwise jump over to their site for full details.
Day One – Introduction and Update
Suitable for all professionals working within the water industry, Day One will deliver an overview of the ARR guidelines and tools, as well as the updates to best practice as detailed in the 2016 edition.
Day Two – Advanced Application
Designed for hydrologists and engineers working within water related fields, this workshop will detail how to practically apply the tools, techniques and software in ARR 2016.
Participants have the option to attend either Day One or Day Two, or the full workshop. Contact EEA to register for a single day.
