Advanced tests such as Effective Stress have become commonplace but other advanced tests can also provide invaluable data during and after ground investigations.
This seminar will provide perspectives from the laboratory and engineer from specifying the tests to receiving the results.
Sampling and sample disturbance
Advanced Triaxial Testing:
Overview of other advanced tests:
John is a Technical Director at GEOLABS Ltd. He obtained his BSc and MSc(Eng) at Imperial College London and his DSc(Eng) from London University and has spent most of his career pioneering geotechnical work at BRE.
