ARTSA reveals line-up for upcoming training course

The Australian Road Transport Suppliers Association (ARTSA) has revealed details on its two-day Forensic Engineering Course to be held on 27-28 February at Life Saving Victoria in Port Melbourne.

“The course is designed to give attendees the basic engineering principles and characteristics of heavy vehicles and their components,” said ARTSA Chairman, Dr Peter Hart. “We encourage people with a professional interest in heavy truck and trailer safety and mechanical performance to attend.

“This course has a strong engineering flavour. However, it is not only for engineers. It will present accurate information at a level that will be readily understood by inspectors, assessors, fleet manager and workshop managers.”

The two-day event will feature 11 keynote speakers – including Dr Peter Hart himself, as well as forensic fire scene investigator, Phil Glover and Guy Macklan, mechanical engineer and forensic investigator from Detroit MTU; alongside many other technical experts from around the country.

The eight-part course will focus on forensic inspection and the hot topic of truck and trailer fire causation. It will also give in-depth information on vehicle dynamics, modelling and crash investigation, as well as braking. It will include information on failure modes as well as bearings, tyres, axles, ride, alignment and steering; and give and outlook on advanced and emerging technologies for heavy vehicles.
