It focuses on the proper selection, design, analysis, performance, specifications, monitoring and construction of of MSE walls and. RSS embankments. This course is entirely based on US Department of Transportation Publication No. FHWA-NHI-00-043 “Mechanically Stabilized Earth Walls and Reinforced Soil Slopes Design & Construction Guidelines”.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
