Site Investigation for Geotechnical Design
Oct 24, 2023 /
Course Code: 1003-WEB23
After participating in this course, you will be able to:
- Perform site investigation for a typical project
- Interpret the field test results and estimate soil parameters
- Determine the proper laboratory tests required for your project
Site investigation is generally conducted before the start of any construction project to gather crucial information that will influence the design, construction, and environmental assessment of a proposed project. Site investigation could be carried out using surface site exploration methods (non-intrusive techniques) and subsurface drilling surveys (intrusive methods). This webinar presents various site exploration techniques used in a typical site investigation process, including geophysical measurements, geotechnical drilling, sampling and field tests.
An overview of selecting proper lab tests for specific site conditions and geotechnical reporting will also be discussed.
- Purpose of site investigation
- Geophysical measurements
- Geotechnical drilling, borehole logs
- Soil sampling techniques
- Field and laboratory tests
- Estimating soil parameters from field tests
Who Should Attend
Those who deal with construction-related geotechnical engineering issues or need to build background on geotechnical analyses and design, including:
- Civil, Environmental and Transportation Engineers/Technicians
- Geologists, city and public works officials/planners
