E – 1257 – Geotextiles in Pavement and Drainage Applications

Intended Audience: civil, mechanical and construction engineers

PDH UNITS: 3

2 STUDENTS ENROLLED

This course will introduce you to geotextiles made from polypropylene, polyester, polyethylene, polyamide (nylon), polyvinylidene chloride, and fiberglass. You will learn about their physical properties, functions, and design methods. You will also learn about two of their most important uses: applications in pavements and drainage design. This course will give you information about the types, construction, durability, functions and applications of geotextiles, with emphasis on their use in pavement and drainage design. This course will give engineers and others an introduction to geotextiles in general, plus specifics about incorporating them into pavement and drainage structures. This course is intended for engineers and construction professionals who want to learn about the benefits and techniques for incorporating geotextiles into construction applications, including pavement and drainage structures.

These are the topics you will learn about:
1. GEOTEXTILES IN GENERAL

1.1 Scope
1.2 Geotextile Types and Construction
1.3 Geotextile Durability
