Presented by the North American Geosynthetic Society (NAGS) and the Geosynthetic Materials Association (GMA) in association with South Dakota State University and the Mountain Plains Consortium Seminar in Geotechnical Engineering.
The 1 day (6PDHs) short course "Geosynthetics in Roadways" provides training on the appropriate, cost-effective utilization of geosynthetics in roadway applications. The course examines the use of geotextiles, geogrids, and edge drains in pavement structures. Applications of filtration, drainage, roadway separation, roadway reinforcement, roadway subgrade improvement, and pavement overlays are addressed.
Who should attend
The workshop is intended for engineers or technical staff who design roadways and would like to gain a greater understanding of the use of geosynthetics in roadway applications.
