NIT: Challenges in Geotechnical Investigation

National Institute of Technology (NIT), Trichy has announced inauguration of IGS Trichy Chapter and 2 day National workshop on "Challenges in Geotechnical Investigation and Foundation design". Department of Civil Engineering, National Institute of Technology, Trichy is organising this event.

About the workshop:

Geotechnical Engineering (GE) concerned with the design and construction of foundations, slopes, retaining walls, embankments, tunnels, levees, wharves, landfills, marine and offshore structures and similar facilities; and with the engineering characterisation and behaviour of the ground its constituent materials. GE plays a key role in all civil engineering projects built on or in the ground. The workshop addresses the role of GE on infrastructure development based on the field experiences.


  • Geotechnical Investigations and Foundation Recommendation
  • Need for quality- Some case studies
  • Foundations and Remedial Measures for structure on Expansive Soils
  • Piled Raft
  • Construction of Very High Retaining Wall and Embankments using Geosynthesis
  • Termination criteria of pile foundation
  • Importance of In-situ testing for Deep Foundation Design
  • Earthquake Resistant Design- Geotechnical aspects and cases studies
  • Geotechnical Investigation for infrastructures development
  • Piles on soft ground
  • Ground Engineering Techniques for Infrastructure Projects
  • Challenges in Geotechnical Investigation
  • Geosynthesis for infrastructure development

The workshop will be conducted between 14th and 15th February, 2014.
