ENGRG 7280 Geosynthetics Engineering
|Course Number:||ENGRG 7280|
|Course Name:||Geosynthetics Engineering|
|Course Description:||This course is designed to fully prepare a student with only an introductory course in soil mechanics to recognize, design, and analyze the geosynthetic alternatives to traditional civil engineering project features such as: subsurface drainage systems; beddings and filters for erosion control systems; erosion control systems; temporary runoff and sediment control; roadways and pavement systems; embankments on soft foundations; stability of steep slopes; retaining walls and abutments; and landfill final cover and base liner systems. P: CIVILENG 3730 Geotechnical Engineering I (a course in soil mechanics) and CIVILENG 3300 Fluid Mechanics, or equivalents of both of these courses.|
