Designing with GeosyntheticsCollege of Engineering
Design methodology for civil engineering application using geosynthetics. Geosynthetics are planar products manufactured from polymeric materials used with soil, rock, earth, or other geotechnical engineering related material as an integral part of a man-made project, structure, or system. Manufacturing, material testing, and design aspects related to reinforcement, filtration, drainage, separation, and containment applications, Design approaches are emphasized. Lecture 3 hours.
