Case Studies in Tubular Mesh Applications Comparing Bio Degradable and Non Biodegradable Options, What Works Best Where

John E. Eaton

This course will outline the variety of tubular erosion control products available to designers today. We will look at the history and evolution of these products and the wide range of applications they are currently being used in today. We will then utilize case studies to illustrate the decision making process used to choose products based on life cycle cost, product sourcing and ease and effectiveness of installation.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Have a working knowledge of the variety of tubular erosion control products available today and their uses.
  • Know the advantages and disadvantages of biodegradable and non biodegradable netting and fill material.
  • Have the ability to assess a project and choose the proper products based on suitability for the task, over all life cycle cost and ease and feasibility of installation.
