Joseph J. Lifrieri, P.E., P.P., P.G.
This course provides engineers and geologists with design guidance on the techniques and procedures of rock reinforcement for underground and surface structures in civil engineering works. The course materials are based entirely on the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' Engineering Manual EM 1110-1-2907: Rock Reinforcement. The manual discusses various reinforcing techniques using tensioned rock bolts, untensioned reinforcement elements, high capacity tensioned rock anchors and surface treatment. The appendices of the manual cover the background and history of rock reinforcement and provide sample specifications for rock bolts and anchors.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
