The revised Earthquake Geotechnical Engineering Practice modules (MBIE/NZGS, 2021) have been issued under section 175 guidance of the Building Act (2004) and summarise current best practice in earthquake geotechnical engineering with a focus on New Zealand conditions, regulatory framework and practice.
Since the issue of the revised Modules, NZGS has received several questions and comments. Therefore, NZGS and the Module authors will run a live webinar on all revised Modules in 2022/23.
Module 5 of the Earthquake Geotechnical Engineering Practice guidelines covers the principles of the design of ground improvement, up-to-date practice and supports the Canterbury Earthquakes Royal Commission recommendations.
Module 5 webinar is planned for 30th November 2022. (Time to be confirmed at a later date). The webinar will include:
- Overview of the high-level changes in this version of the Module by Alexei Murashev, Campbell Keepa and Nick Wharmby.
- Live Q&A session with input from NZGS members to lead authors.
- In advance of the webinar, we would like you to send us your questions to allow us to incorporate answers into the webinar. Please provide questions to email@example.com by 28th October 2022.
