Profile of the programme The use of geosynthetics in Infrastructure systems needs specialised knowledge on the requirements that allow their adequate performance, in order to ensure the application of the principles of the circular economy model throughout the life cycle of the works
The aim of this course is to provide support to the design and proper selection of geosynthetics, considering the regulatory framework in force from 2022
This course is intended to be of use for those who are not specialists in geosynthetics, are unfamiliar with the terminology associated with them, are faced with a large choice of geosynthetic products during a project and with a specific regulatory framework of which they are not fully aware of its existence.
Key learning outcomes Upon completion of the course, the participants will be able to: - differentiate between types of geosynthetics and identify the functions of geosynthetics in their applications; - indicate the relevant properties for the appropriate performance of these functions and evaluate these properties by methods currently used; - identify the agents and mechanisms of degradation relevant to the main functions of geosynthetics, estimate their design lifetime and evaluate reduction factors for the properties of geosynthetics; - prepare specifications for the use of geosynthetics in Infrastructure systems; - make decisions in situations of limited or incomplete information, including reflections on the ethical and social implications and responsibilities that result from these decisions or condition them.
