You can catch-up on details or any broadcast and downloads here.


The quarterly meeting will include updates and two presentations. 

The first presentation will be from Dr Andrew Lees - global application technology manager for Tensor. Lees will explore the new Lees-Han unpaved road design method and discuss the new features including improved calculation methods for tyre contact, stress bearing capacity, wheel wander and rut accumulation. 

The second presentation will be from Ajay Nagah and Dr Simon Wilkinson, civil engineers at Altrad RMD Kwikform. They will explore how the use of historic data and digital VR models have facilitated a more rationalised thermal load design approach to be adopted, leading to a leaner temporary propping solution. 

The presentation will conclude with an insight into how thermal loading could minimise even further on future projects through a new innovative solution.
