Ground Modification Methods is a practical training course that provides participants the knowledge and ability to effectively implement the latest ground modification methods and procedures used in connection with transportation related construction.
The course content includes information on the description, history, functions, and categories of ground modification methods; a description of the web-based GeoTechTools technology selection and guidance system, and geotechnology catalog; and a series of stand-alone technical chapters on ground modification method categories. Each category chapter contains lessons that outline the current practice in design, construction methods and materials, design concepts, costs, and contracting methods and specifications.
The overall goal of Ground Modification Methods is to introduce agencies to state of the practice design tools and construction methods on available ground modification methods to design specialists, generalists, and construction engineers involved in projects with problematic site conditions.
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.
