In-Situ Testing, CPTU: Theory, Application and Interpretation

Various speakers

The course aims to educate professionals working in geosciences, environmental sciences and civil and mining construction in the field of in-situ testing. Often overlooked as a tool or method to obtain information about the sub-surface conditions, this one day course aims to provide a basis and appreciation of the possibilities of in-situ testing in general and CPTu in particular. The course may be particularly relevant to professionals from mining, consulting and construction backgrounds that would benefit from a broader understanding of site investigation methods and its applications.

The course will comprise theoretical background, demonstration of equipment, case studies and workshop and exercises. The workshop will be interactive and focused on practical applications. As a bonus AGS has been provided with the opportunity to have a number of rigs available during the day for the participants to witness and experience the actual data gathering.

It is worth mentioning that attendance at this seminar contributes towards the IEAust’s requirements for Continuing Professional Development.

Engineers Australia members participating in AGS technical sessions can record attendance on their personal CPD logs. Members should refer to Engineers Australia CPD policy for details on CPD types, requirements and auditing guidelines.
