The Fabricated Geomembrane Institute (FGI) will offer the short course “Geosynthetics in Civil Engineering Applications” on Oct. 27, 2017, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. EDT at The Ohio State University in Columbus.

The short course, presented in partnership with The Ohio State University, Owens Corning Science and Technology, Ohio Environmental Protection Agency, Ohio Department of Natural Resources, and the Ohio Department of Transportation, will focus on geosynthetics applications including water resources, containment, dams and conveyance, roadways, landfills, coal combustion residuals, MSE walls and more.

Organized by Timothy D.
