Program

This course generally discusses geotechnical concerns with respect to land development across the various geologic regions of the Carolinas. It covers the main aspects of how a subsurface exploration is successfully taken from the proposal stage to construction. We will discuss scope, preliminary information, selection of testing methods, field exploration, laboratory testing, liquefaction, ground improvement, settlement and capacities. We also briefly review the history of Geotechnical Engineering.

Learning Objectives:

1.  Upon completion of this program, participants will assess and understand the importance of boring quality and locations for geotechnical studies and structural design for a site.

2.  Participants will discover the difference between CPT and SPT drilling methods for subsurface investigation

3.  Participants will differentiate what causes liquefaction and what methods are available to mitigate it.

4.  Participants will recognizes the history of geotechnical engineering.

Presented by:
