Application of Geotextiles in Civil Engineering

This webinar provides a review of the four basic functions of geotextiles and the corresponding design criteria that are most critical to consider for those specific applications.

Presentation Overview:

Geotextiles are one of the most versatile geosynthetic in civil engineering applications. They are used to reinforce vertical and steep banks of soil, ground applications such as temporary and permanent roads and highways, ground drains, filter, and erosion prevention applications. This presentation will provide a review of the four basic functions of geotextiles and the corresponding design criteria that are most critical to consider for those specific applications. In addition, a discussion of the various classes of projects that will benefit from use of geotextiles will be included. A sample of local case studies utilizing diverse applications will be presented to demonstrate the most commonly used and recommended practices.
