SYNOPSIS

Geosynthetics have been increasingly adopted in geotechnical and environmental engineering since the 1970s. In many cases, the use of traditional building materials would be restricted or much more expensive, which shows that adopting geosynthetics in design is one of the best alternative solution, to assist designers and builders in resolving many technical issues of this nature. However, geosynthetics shall be selected appropriately for different applications in either geotechnical or environmental engineering.

The course will cover the following topics:

1. Basic knowledge and grounding of geosynthetics engineering
2. Familiar with correct specification to ensure performance of geosynthetics
3. Application of geosynthetics in geotechnical and environmental engineering


  WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

Civil engineers, project management personnel, and any person involved in designing and managing any project in the construction industry.
