This webinar offers states and local agencies information on the recently completed R02 project, GeoTechTools, and how this product can assist those who are working on ABC-related projects. This web-based tool (www.GeoTechTools.org) is a Technology Catalog with detailed information on 46 geo-construction and ground modification techniques, and a Technology Selection System to aid in identifying potential solutions based on user-defined project conditions. GeoTechTools is a comprehensive design aid for anyone involved in the design and construction of earth retention and structural foundations, transportation earthwork, general ground improvement, or pavements. This webinar will describe the GeoTechTools and provide a brief tour of the web-based system.
