Course Title: Focus on The Evolution of Turf Reinforcement Mat Technology
Delivery Method: Live Online
Course Description: This course examines the use of turf reinforcement mats (TRMs) in site development from their origination up to the present. Topics include TRM applications for slope and vegetation stabilization, erosion control applications, case studies of TRMs, and a discussion of resources, testing data and design tools.
Learning Objective 1:
Learners will be able to describe how and why turf reinforcement mats are utilized in site development, and determine appropriate applications for their use.
Learning Objective 2:
Learners will be able to explain how turf reinforcement mats can be used to reduce slope movement by permanently stabilizing vegetation.
Learning Objective 3:
