Design and Construction of Earthworks

<< Back to Course Catalogue

After participating in this course, you will be able to:

  • Apply soil mechanics principles to earthwork design and construction
  • Consider environmental factors in earthworks
  • Interpret geotechnical reports, environmental assessments, specifications, guidelines and standards pertaining to the design and construction of earthworks
  • Optimize your choices of construction technology, equipment and procedure

Description
In this three-day seminar, you will obtain an overview of principles and techniques for the design and construction of earthworks. You will learn how to address these issues through presentations, hands-on exercises and discussions with an expert.

Specific topics include soil characterization, interpretation of soil reports, construction and quality control of earthworks, dewatering of fine-grained geo-materials (mine tailings and soft clays), the impact of groundwater and other environmental issues, and soil excavation. Case studies will be used to help you better understand course material.
