OVERVIEW OF THE COURSE

This course is aimed at providing an opportunity for the researchers, academicians, engineers, and students to learn about geosynthetic applications in road construction and maintenance.Development and use of polymeric materials in the form of geosynthetics as a new class of construction materials have revolutionized the infrastructure and the environmental protection works in the construction industry during the past three to four decades. Geosynthetics are available in a wide range of compositions appropriate to different applications and environments.

The engineers have increasingly grown interested in geosynthetics and their correct use because the geosynthetics often provide efficient, cost-effective, environment-friendly and/or energy-efficient solutions to several problems.Rational design methods, based on sound concepts and standardized test techniques for determining the technical properties of geosynthetics, are now available, thus placing the geosynthetics on a firm base.

Geosynthetics are effectively used in construction and maintenance of unpaved and paved roads, and in several other applications. Many successful case studies have been reported in recent past. The practicing civil engineers, therefore, require an exposure to the geosynthetics and their applications in road construction and maintenance.

COURSE OBJECTIVES

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

  • Differentiate between types of geosynthetics and the primary and secondary functions they perform in various civil engineering applications.
  • Select the geosynthetics for their appropriate and cost-effective use in construction and maintenance of unpaved and paved roads.
  • Recommend the type of tests on Geosynthetics required for their applications in road construction and maintenance.
  • Develop the general guidelines for geosynthetic installation in road construction and maintenance.
  • Locate the additional references on Geosynthetics and their applications.

COURSE PARTICIPANTS

  • Teachers of engineering and polytechnic colleges.
  • Civil engineers and specialized contractors dealing with design, construction and/or maintenance work.
  • Researchers and engineering scientists.
  • Government officials, NGOs, and Faculty members.
  • Students of engineering colleges.

COURSE CONTENTS

  • Description of geosynthetics and their basic functions.
  • Properties of geosynthetics, their evaluation, and selection.
