12/06/2021:LIVE WEBINAR,Geotechnical Engineering:Repairing Soil Deformations & Settlement, 11am-1pm

Start Date
End Date
One of the common tools in the development of infrastructure projects is the build-up of earthen embankments either to flatten construction pads or to change the topography of the land to fit the new development and infrastructure scheme. And one common problem of these foundation earthen fills is deformation, both vertical and lateral. Professionals within the A/E/C industry need to be capable of designing foundation elements to accommodate or prevent deformation, as well as being able to select remediation alternatives for deformed soils. In this course, engineers, architects, planners, contractors and design professionals will learn the most common geotechnical alternatives for preventing and restoring the deformation of soils and embankments. Note: This is a live webinar delivered via GoToWebinar. Session instructions will be emailed to you 24-48 hours prior to the webinar and the morning of the webinar. If you have not received your instructions for any reason please call Client Support (1-866-546-1212) the day of the event. Webinars are live and interactive. Students will have the ability to directly interact with and ask questions of the presenter.

Learning Outcomes
Identify the main element that causes internal deformation in roadway embankments that may contribute to unsafe traveling conditions. Given a set of foundation failure parameters identify whether the soil failure was caused by either internal or external deformation. Describe the safety considerations for selecting structural backfill Use four steps to estimate the stresses in native soils under earthen fills.Select at least two load reducing techniques used to reduce the amount of settlement so as to provide smooth and safe traveling conditions. Given a roadway embankment cross-section, identify the placement location for a slope inclinometer for verifying settlement during construction so as to ensure safe traveling conditions.
