Design and Construction of Earthworks
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
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.
