Welcome

Course title: "Mechanically Stabilized Earth Walls and Reinforced Soil Slopes Course"

Description: This practical training program is based on AASHTO/FHWA technical specifications and design and construction recommendations on soil reinforcement will help you appreciate and implement mechanically stabilized earth walls and reinforced soil slopes. Discussions will involve civil and geotechnical design issues. You will learn how to combine soil reinforcing materials made of steel and polymers with an appropriate facing to produce a composite structure with improved engineering properties. These earth fill construction methods are extremely cost effective and aesthetically pleasing, and they provide substantial construction time- savings compared to conventional types of earth retaining. Registration will be limited in order to facilitate interactive learning. It includes hands-on experience with the MSEW and ReSSA software.

Instructors: Dov Leshchinsky and Jim Collin


Course title: "Soil Slope and Embankment Design"

This course is provided by the National Highway Institute (FHWA) and it is offered to US State DOT's.
