E – 1594 – Engineering Uses of Geotextiles

Intended Audience: Geotechnical, Civil, Environmental, and Water Resources engineers



Get the ultimate manual covering the engineering uses of geotextiles.

This online engineering course curated by industry expert Don Parnell, PE delves into the physical properties, functions, design methods, design details and construction procedures for geotextiles as used in pavements, railroad beds, retaining wall earth embankment, rip-rap, concrete revetment, and drain construction.

The geotextile functions/applications described in this course include pavements, filtration and drainage, reinforced embankments, railroads, erosion and sediment control, and earth retaining walls. This manual doesn’t cover the use of other geosynthetics such as geogrids, geonets, geomembranes, plastic strip drains, composite products and products made from natural cellulose fibers.
