In situ testing is an essential part of a well-planned ground investigation as it is arguably the best method for obtaining true geotechnical parameters. Tests obviously vary in complexity and appropriateness and should never be taken in isolation without an understanding of the likely ground conditions and geology.
This course provides an overview of in situ tests used in common practice and some of the more specialist tests together with their advantages and limitations.
This course will look at the various methods used to obtain properties such as:
The course will consider tests such as:
Borehole Penetration Vane
Falling Weight Deflectometer
Sand & Water Replacement
Nuclear and Non-Nuclear Density Gauge
SPECIALIST GEOTECHNICAL TRAINING PROVIDED TO OVER 1000 GEOTECHNICAL MANAGERS, TECHNICIANS, ENGINEERS AND DRILLERS SINCE 2014
At the end of the course the delegates should be able to:
Understand the practical application of In situ tests
Understand the limitations of tests
Understand why and which in situ testing would be most appropriate
