This course gives you an overview of applications and new rules and guidelines for geosynthetics under stone coverings on dikes and geotextile sand elements in structures.
Geosynthetics, also called geotextiles, are increasingly implemented in hydraulic engineering projects. These are often cheaper and more environmentally-friendly than traditional techniques. The geosynthetics should be applied carefully during the construction of civil engineering structures, as failing to do so may result in damages.
This course provides an overview of known and novel applications of geotextiles in hydraulic engineering. Additionally, new design rules and implementation guidelines are presented, specifically for geosynthetics under stone revetments on dikes and geotextiles in sandy elements of hydraulic constructions. The latter can be used as an alternative for quarry stones or basalt.
During this course you will practice independently the use of design guidelines as documented in several publications, particularly the new Guideline Geotextiles under stone revetments (Dutch: Richtlijn Geotextielen onder steenbekledingen).
During this course you will learn:
People involved in the design and execution of hydraulic structures in which geosynthetics are applied (clients, project leaders, designers, contractors, supervisors).
This course will be presented in English.
The program will follow soon.

Are several employees interested in the same course, do you want to enrich knowledge with the entire team or focus on your own practice? Then an in-company course could be interesting. We are happy to think along with you about the possibilities. PAOTM has extensive experience in organizing in-company courses in many technical fields for a wide range of companies. You can choose to have an existing course organized in-company for multiple employees. However, if you have a specific organizational or departmental issue, we can also design a unique course. For every customized request, we search our network at universities, knowledge institutes and the business community for the right teachers who can provide your team with the desired knowledge. We then put together a course based on your training needs, learning needs and organizational goals.
