Advanced Geotechnical Laboratory Testing

Course Outline.

At a time when Clients are asking for more efficiency in their designs whilst reducing costs, Geotechnical Engineers and Designers are increasingly specifying Advanced Geotechnical Laboratory Testing to obtain reliable data to enable cost effective design.

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.

Course Contents.

  • Effective stress:

    • What the test is
    • What you should specify
    • What results you will get
    • What the results can be used for
  • Sampling and sample disturbance

  • Advanced Triaxial Testing:

    • What the test is
    • What you should specify
    • What results you will get
    • What the results can be used for
  • Overview of other advanced tests:

    • Cyclic Triaxial
    • Direct Simple Shear (static and dynamic)
    • Constant Rate of Strain (CRS) Oedometer
    • Resonant Column
  • Quality Assurance
