Understanding Soil Types and their Impact on a Project
Soils bear the ultimate force of the traffic load. Examine soil classifications, testing methods, non-vehicular residential testing methods. You will learn:
1. Why you should classify soils?
2. Which “pyramid” system compares percentage of silt, sand and clay in a soil sample
3. What options an installer has when dealing with a saturated jobsite where is appears it will take a long time to remove water.
4. Which tests will give a contractor an “educated guess” as to soil type when proper geotechnical analysis is not in the project budget
The webinar is an elective for the ICPI Residential Paver Specialist Course and ICPI Commercial Paver Specialist Course, as well as one hour of continuing education for renewal of the Certified Concrete Paver Installer credential.
