COURSE DESCRIPTION:

This course (1-day) provides training on construction with geosynthetics in transportation applications. The course examines the use of geotextiles, geogrids, pavement edge drains, drainage composites, erosion control materials and sediment control materials. Construction of filtration, drainage, temporary and permanent erosion control, sediment control, roadway separation, roadway reinforcement, roadway subgrade improvement, pavement overlays, embankments over soft foundations, mechanically stabilized earth walls, mechanically stabilized earth slopes applications are reviewed.

This 1-day construction summary course provides an introduction to geosynthetic installations.

OUTCOMES:

Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Recognize geosynthetic applications for transportation facilities, construction and maintenance
  • Identify types of geosynthetics and the functions they perform
  • State and review general construction procedures and inspection items for geosynthetic installations
  • Locate references on geosynthetic materials and geosynthetic applications

TARGET AUDIENCE:

Federal, State and local transportation personnel (bridge, hydraulic, pavement, geotechnical, construction, and maintenance engineers, and construction inspectors and technicians) involved with construction and maintenance of transportation facilities that include earthwork construction.
