This 1.5-day course provides training on the appropriate, cost-effective utilization of geosynthetics in transportation applications. The course examines the use of geotextiles and geogrids as soil reinforcement. Embankments over soft foundations, geosynthetic reinforced MSE walls, reinforced soil slopes, and geosynthetic reinforced load transfer platforms are addressed.
Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
Federal, State and local transportation personnel (bridge, geotechnical, construction engineers, and construction inspectors and technicians) involved with design and/or construction of transportation facilities that incorporate reinforced soil earthworks. In addition, public agency and private sector construction engineers and project inspectors responsible for installation, construction monitoring and inspection of reinforced soil installations can attend either course. There are no prerequisites, although prior attendance in FHWA-NHI-132012 Soils and Foundations Workshop is recommended.
