COURSE DESCRIPTION:

This course presents the concepts of mechanically stabilized earth wall (MSEW) and reinforced soil slope (RSS) systems and their application to roadways. The construction materials for both systems are described and guidance on acceptance for use is given. MSEW and RSS system construction steps are taught and typical construction practices and techniques are presented.

OUTCOMES:

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

  • Recognize potential applications for MSEWs and RSS structures in transportation facilities
  • Recognize differences between available systems and their components
  • Understand the intent of specification/contracting method(s)
  • Define and communicate major components of construction inspection of MSEWs and RSS structures to confirm compliance with design
  • Understand the steps for MSEW and RSS construction and the corresponding points for inspection

TARGET AUDIENCE:

The primary audience for this course is agency and consultant construction engineers, inspectors, and technicians. In addition, management; specification and contracting specialists; bridge/structures, geotechnical, and roadway design engineers; and engineering geologists interested in construction aspects of MSEWs and RSS structures are encouraged to attend. Attendees should have a basic knowledge of soil mechanics and structural engineering. (Note that NHI offers a 3-day course, FHWA-NHI-132042 Design of MSEWs and RSSs and a 3-day course, FHWA-NHI-132080 Inspection of MSEWs and RSSs.)
