  • Have an understanding of the importance of using CPT specialists
  • Advantages and limitations of CPT tools and techniques
  • Have an understanding of how CPT data can be used for soil interpretation
  • Have an understanding of how CPT data can be used for design
  • Have an appreciation of recognising suspect/erroneous data

Who should attend?

Onshore and offshore specifiers, procurers and users of Cone Penetration Testing. Geotechnical Engineers, Engineering Geologists, Consulting Engineers, Civil Engineers, Designers, Developers and Clients involved in onshore and offshore ground investigations.

Technical Seminar – Geophysics in Geotechnical Practice

GEOPHYSICS IN GEOTECHNICAL PRACTICE

Seminar Dates: 10th November 2015

Location: Equipe Training Offices, Banbury

The seminar will increase the awareness regarding the correct use of geophysics for noninvasive investigations, structural and geological mapping and ground modelling which can provide an in depth and continuous understanding of both surface and subsurface conditions and can also reduce the risk of underground hazards and optimise budgets.

What delegates will learn:

  • Have an understanding of the importance of using a geophysics specialist
  • Advantages and limitations of land and downhole geophysical techniques
  • Have an understanding of how geophysics can be used to reduce risk
  • Have an understanding of when geophysics can complement obtrusive investigations
  • Have an appreciation of what the results mean and how they are obtained

Who should attend?

Geophysical Investigation Specifyers, Geophysics Graduates, Geotechnical Engineers, Engineering Geologists, Consulting Engineers, Designers, Developers and Clients.

theGeotechnica – Issue No.45 October 2015

October 2015

– All Four Quarters – a Capital Result for Aarsleff’s Precast Piling – Writing for theGeotechnica this month is Debbie Darling of Jooce Marketing & PR on behalf of Aarsleff. This month Debbie reveals details of Aarsleff’s recent work on the Capital Quarter, a new development in the centre of Cardiff.

– Contaminant of the month: Trichloroethene (TCE) – Writing for theGeotechnica this month is Geraint Williams of Alcontrol Laboratories. This month Geraint returns to the extremely popular contaminant of the month series, and reviews the uses, properties and toxicology of Trichloroethene.

– Do we need to increase our technical knowledge? – Taking a look at areas of potential improvement for the geotechnical industry’s technical knowledge is Calum Spires of the Equipe Group. As the industry looks to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of it’s ground investigations, Calum asks what can be done to help get the most out of standard GI practices.

– The digital revolution – The use of digital technology on geotechnical sites – This month in theGeotechnica we examine the rise of digital technology implementation across the geotechnical industry. Providing this examination are Julian Lovell and Calum Spires of the Equipe Group, as well as a case study of technology use from Shaun Corcoran, ICT Manager at Geotechnical Engineering.
