NHI-132034B is a 2 day abridged version of NHI-132034A Ground Modification Methods, a 3.5 day instructor-led course. Both options are practical training courses that provide participants with the knowledge and ability to effectively implement the latest ground modification methods and procedures used in connection with transportation related construction. This abridged 2 day course covers four of the nine ground modification categories covered in the 3.5 day course. Each category has a separate lesson devoted to it that outlines history and development, construction methods and materials, design concepts, costs,and contracting methods and specifications.
The categories highlighted in NHI course 132034B are Lightweight Fills, Deep Compaction, Soil Mixing, and Grouting.
The overall goal of Ground Modification Methods is to provide agencies with state of the practice design tools and construction methods to expand implementation of safe and cost effective ground modification technologies and to help Owners identify and manage project delivery optionsand the risks associated with ground modification projects.
Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
List categories and functions of ground modification methods and techniques.
Locate criteria to determine the applicability of each ground modification method discussed for a specific project under consideration.
Describe advantages, disadvantages, and limitations for each ground modification method discussed.
Describe how GeoTechTools can be used to identify potential applications for ground modification methods for use in transportation facilities.
Locate and identify required soil and rock properties necessary to perform preliminary design.
Prepare conceptual and basic designs, and evaluate contractor submitted designs.
Identify appropriate quality assurance methods for various ground modification methods.
Summarize key elements of a preferred contracting method.
The primary target audience is agency and consultant bridge/structures, geotechnical, and roadway design engineers; engineering geologists; and consultant review specialists. Additionally, management, specification and contracting specialists, and construction engineers interested in the design and contracting of ground modification methods are encouraged to attend. All attendees should have a basic knowledge of geotechnical engineering. Attainment of an undergraduate degree in civil engineering, geology, or equivalent engineering experience in the highway/transportation field is preferred.
