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.
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.
