Advanced Uses of CPT Data – We invite you to a FREE training course!

We are excited to announce that we are holding our very first CPT training course later in the year on Tuesday 29th September 2015.  We’re confident it will be a great event that will provide an invaluable and free-of-charge opportunity to improve theoretical and practical knowledge of using CPT data. We’re keen to share our wealth of expertise built up through years of on-site experience, and are confident that the course content will be of interest to many in the field.

The all-day event will be held at the BRE, Watford, which is a world-leading multi-disciplinary building science centre with a mission to improve the built environment through research and knowledge generation. Parking is available on-site and lunch and refreshments will be served, so please advise us if you have specific dietary requirements. The course will start at 9am and finish at 4.30pm.

We are delighted that renowned experts Dr John Powell and Tom Lunne are also going to be delivering the course content alongside Darren.

Dr John Powell is the Technical Director of GEOLABS Ltd and Tom Lunne is the Expert Advisor at NGI.

Dr John Powell has over 40 years of experience in geotechnical engineering covering laboratory and insitu testing of soils and their use and interpretation.

Tom Lunne is Technical Advisor at the Norwegian Geotechnical Institute. He has been involved with offshore geotechnical engineering since working in the North Sea in the beginning of the 1970’s.  His main interests are all aspects of soil characterization including sampling, laboratory testing and in situ testing. Together with Peter Robertson and Dr John Powell he has written a textbook on the CPTU in geotechnical practice.

Darren Ward is Managing Director of In Situ SI and has worked in the CPT field for the last 7 years and has worked in many different environments, including both onshore and offshore. He has carried out several pieces of published technical research in collaboration with a variety of academic institutes.

Course content will include:

  • New standards and ensuring data quality
  • Laying, soil identification and geotechnical properties in sands
  • Geotechnical properties in clays
  • Other materials – silts, chalk etc.
  • Software Use
  • Pile Design
  • Other Direct Use e.g. compaction
  • Case Histories
  • Add-On Devices

Make sure that you have registered to attend the course by emailing Course booking closes on Friday 25th September, and will be done on a first-come, first-served basis.
