This one day geotechnical training course will look at the various methods available to carry out intrusive and non-intrusive investigation. Whilst the course will concentrate on geotechnical methods some geo-environmental methods will also be briefly discussed.
The course will start by looking at the aims of the investigation and categorise the various stages in a Site Investigation from Desk Study to Reporting.
- Assessing the Designers requirements
- Compiling a Desk Study
- Choosing the optimum drilling and sampling techniques
- Scoping the Ground Investigation
- Assessing the health, safety and environmental impact
- Laboratory testing considerations
- Instrumentation and Monitoring
- Data collation and Reporting
At the end of the course the delegates should be able to:
- Recognise the importance of assessing the Designers requirements
- Understand the contents of a Desk Study
- Carry out a scope of a simple Ground Investigation
- Assess the health, safety and environmental impact of the field work
- Consider laboratory, instrumentation and monitoring requirements
- Understand the documentation to be completed
Who should attend?
This course is aimed at graduates and geotechnical practitioners who have started or will be involved in the planning and implementation of Site investigations.
