AICTE sponsored “Short Term Training Programme (STTP)”
About the Programme:
The utilization of cost-effective material such as Geosynthetics is important to achieve the desired life of the pavement as well as to facilitate their faster construction. Geotextiles had a market share of more than a third in the Geosynthetics market in 2017 and this is predicted to rise to almost 40% by end 2027. The current knowledge level of the Engineering faculties handling these areas is at the basic level and they lack in knowledge about recent developments in the Geosynthetics applications in civil construction fields. In this context this the right time to enhance the knowledge and skills of the Textile Technology and Civil Engineering faculties who are to play a major role in imparting knowledge to the undergraduates so that the employability of the students will be improved in coming years. Apart from this the Research and Development is very much essential to catering the above potential market hence this STTP on Geosynthetics will provide 360° insights on Manufacturing, Designing, Testing and its Applications to the Teaching Faculties.
To impart knowledge on the recent developments in Geosynthetics. To familiarize and educate the skills on designing, testing and analysis of Geosynthetics. To eye open novel ideas towards research concepts such as soil erosion, landslides, stabilization of soils, Geosynthetics as construction materials in civil engineering projects etc. To educate the participants and give focus for improvement in current road structure so that safety levels and reduction of prone to hazards for beneficial to society. To elaborate concept of Geosynthetics, their manufacture and their behavior and their applications in different civil engineering designs.
Eminent faculty members from premier Institution/ Industry will be the resource person. Industrial visit will be organized.
