Cone Penetration Testing (CPT) Seminar

The New Zealand Geotechnical Society (NZGS), in cooperation with Civil Engineering Testing Association (CETANZ), proudly present a full-day seminar on Cone Penetration Testing

(CPT). The objective of the seminar is to familiarise the participant with the CPT in the widest sense, from the equipment, the theory behind the test and the use in geotechnical practice,

to the data obtained.

 

The seminar is presented by Geomil Equipment. Geomil is the world’s first manufacturer of CPT equipment and for over 80 years they have been supplying the geotechnical industry

from their base near Gouda, the Netherlands. The presenter Ernst Wassenaar, started working in the CPT industry in 1991 for Conewel B.V., a small manufacturer of CPT electronics that in 1996 merged with the Gouda Machine Factory to become Geomil Equipment B.V. In his current role, Ernst acts as Regional Manager for Geomil Asia-Pacific.

 

The seminar will be presented Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch in the following dates:

AUCKLAND: Tuesday 12 November 2019.

WELLINGTON: Wednesday 13 November 2019.

CHRISTCHURCH: Thursday 14 November 2019.

 

The cost of the seminar is $280+GST for NZGS and CETANZ members and $650+GST for non- NZGS, non-CETANZ members.

Forensic Engineering Investigation

Recent earthquakes and building failures have highlighted the need for more investigating engineers who can apply basic techniques and draw conclusions on the extent of damage and the need for suitable repairs. The course will cover basic investigation techniques, data collection and analysis and the procedures you need to follow to produce a credible forensic engineering report.
Duration: 8 hours
Presenter: Stephen Jenkins

DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION TECHNIQUES ON SOFT GROUND (HAMI)

NZGS IS PROUDLY PRESENTING A REPETITION OF THE SUCCESSFUL 1-DAY SHORT COURSE ON SOFT GROUND ENGINEERING HELD IN 2018.

NZGS is proudly presenting a repetition of the successful 1-day short course on soft ground engineering held in 2018.

 

This course starts with an overview of soft soil engineering, discussing issues when constructing over soft soils, strategies for project development, construction and ground

improvement.  Soft soil theory is then presented based on critical state concepts. Once the theory is established, scoping a site investigation program to develop geological

and geotechnical models to provide information to support the theory is discussed.

 

Scoping instrumentation and monitoring and back analysis are addressed in the course. Factors to consider when writing technical specifications are discussed.  These

concepts are combined into a short design exercise for the attendees to consider. Lessons learnt from a prediction and back analysis symposium are presented to demonstrate

best practice for consolidation assessments. Lastly, some case histories for ground improvement in NZ are presented to provide the attendees with context.

 

The course is targeted at geotechnical engineers with minimum 2 years’ experience, and ideally at those with 5 to 10 years’ experience.  More senior engineers may

benefit from a refresher.  It is assumed that the attendees have a university level understanding of soil mechanics.

 

The course is presented by Dr. Richard Kelly, a Chartered Professional Engineer and fellow of the Institution of Engineers Australia with 25 years of experience as a geotechnical

engineer, academic and structural engineer and Mr. Nick Wharmby, a Civil Engineer specialised in Geotechnology with international experience on design, project management and

construction of foundations and ground improvement.
