Risk and Reliability Analysis in Geotechnical Engineering

The Risk and Reliability Analysis in Geotechnical Engineering workshop is ideal if you are seeking to expand your knowledge of and skills in reliability analysis techniques as civil engineering or engineering geology practitioner. Analysis techniques in geotechnical engineering typically estimate the collapse load or factor of safety applicable to a boundary value problem, but does not provide information on the probability of failure.

Introduction to Unsaturated Soil Mechanics

The Introduction to Unsaturated Soil Mechanics is a one-day course focusing on the theoretical framework and practical aspects of unsaturated soil mechanics in geotechnical engineering.  The emphasis is on fundamental principles, stress state variables, steady-state and transient flows, soil-water characteristics, theory of shear strength and its measurement, soil stiffness, plastic and limit equilibrium analyses of earth pressures, slope stability and bearing capacity. Attention will be paid on how to extend classical saturated soil mechanics to encompass unsaturated soil behaviour.

Advanced Course in Slope, Seepage and Foundation Analysis

The Advanced Course in Slope, Seepage and Foundation Analysis will expand your knowledge of analytical methods as a civil engineer or engineering geology practitioner and equip you with practical techniques incorporated in modern commercial software packages specifically used in the geotechnical stability analysis of slopes and walls, as well as seepage and consolidation analysis. 

In-situ Geotechnical Testing and Tailings Applications

The In-situ Geotechnical Testing and Tailings Applications short course will refresh your knowledge of in-situ geotechnical testing while also introducing you to new developments in the field. The course focuses on the most widely used tests and applications, including the Standard Penetration Test (SPT ), Cone Penetration Test (CPT ), Piezocone (CPTu) and seismic tests.

Geotechnical Laboratory Testing

The Geotechnical Laboratory Testing workshop is ideal if you are seeking to improve your knowledge on the specification of geotechnical soil tests, interpretation of data and the ability to judge the quality of laboratory test results as civil engineering or engineering geology practitioner. The workshop specifically covers the application of the triaxial, shearbox, oedometer and Rowe cell tests.

Introduction to Critical State Soil Mechanics

The Introduction to Critical State Soil Mechanics short course provides you with a comprehensive look at critical state soil mechanics and its application in geotechnical engineering. The course covers important aspects such as stress invariants and stress paths, while exploring the concept and application of a state boundary surface to describe the behaviour of normal and overconsolidated soil.
