This two day training course provides clarity and understanding on how to design monitor, control and deliver successful earthworks projects. It has been developed with the needs of designers, contractors and clients in mind.
It addresses three key areas:
Day one focusses on the information needed to enable the design to be carried out. It considers the soil and soil behaviour and how to specify a site investigation to ensure that the correct information is obtained and the soil parameters defined to classify the soil and specify the design. Practical sessions will deal with how to specify an investigation and understanding the advantages and limitations of the various tests which can be carried out.
Day two focusses on the design of earthworks utilising the Highway Agency specification and the various methods of placement and control for an earthworks project. It also considers some of the more challenging soils met in the UK as well as soil improvement methods available to modify and improve the performance of natural soils. Each session will include a practical exercise and discussion session.
