TC3 is offering courses about rockfall stabilization and concrete overlays for no charge through August 2016.
This four-hour course introduces the key concepts in rockfall stabilization, including tools and methods used in stabilization and reinforcement. The purpose of this course is to familiarize the construction inspector with current techniques utilized in stabilizing rock slopes with respect to rockfall. This course will most benefit federal, state and local highway agency employees and consultant personnel who are involved in the stabilization of rock slopes, as well as construction inspectors responsible for rockfall stabilization.
Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to describe scaling methods and techniques; identify and explain different types of rockfall containment systems and barriers; explain the types of rock reinforcement testing; identify and explain high-tensile-strength wire mesh, draped wire mesh and cable net; and more.
This two-hour module is part of the PCC Pavement Preservation Series, which presents current guidelines and recommendations for the design, construction and selection of cost-effective concrete pavement preservation strategies. This module discusses how preventive maintenance impacts pavement preservation, good candidates for preservation and the benefits to pavement preservation.
This training is designed for design engineers, quality control personnel, contractors, suppliers, technicians and tradespeople. While the course is aimed at those who have some familiarity with concrete pavements and pavement preservation, it is also of value to those who are new to the field.
