All engineered construction resting on the earth must be supported by some kind of interfacing element, called a foundation. It is evident that foundation is the very important part of a civil engineering project. ‘CIVIL ENGINEERS CHALLENGES IN GEOTECHNICAL INVESTIGATIONS AND FOUNDATION DESIGN’ aims to provide an exposure to the participants on various soil characterization methods through case studies, observation and interpretation methods involved, real time challenges faced and solutions to them by eminent practitioners from academia and industries. This event will provide a platform for knowledge exchange between the learners and professionals.
Planning and Execution of Geotechnical Investigation through case studies
• Best Practices in Field testing SPT, CPT, DCPT and Sampling
• Laboratory Testing and Soil Parameters
• Practical Geotechnical Investigation Report and Interpretations
• Case studies of Foundation Designs on Normal and problematic soils
Workshop on Civil Engineers Challenges in Geotechnical investigations and Foundation Design
