Webinar

Design and construction professionals are invited to a TRB webinar on Thursday, October 10, 2019, from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET. The webinar will provide an overview of Mechanically Stabilized Earth (MSE) walls and ground improvement methods. MSE structures allow for stabilization in soil environments that typically are not conducive to settlement and provide a path to easier infrastructure construction. The webinar will discuss challenges related to, and solutions for, construction of MSE walls in various challenging geologic settings. Presenters will also discuss their extensive experience in the design, construction, and performance of MSE walls on sites with soft foundational soils.This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committee on Transportation Earthworks.
