WORKSHOP ON GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEERING AND ITS APPLICATIONS CONDUCTED ON 09.09.2016

One day Workshop on geotechnical engineering was conducted by Civil engineering department to provide basic knowledge about the soil parameters and its field application in the construction. It mainly focus on layers of soil, type of foundation for different soil conditions, field application with current technology and a half day site demo on safe bearing capacity of soil. In the workshop Prof.Ramasamy from EBET (Erode) presented about the soil testing methods on low bearing soil and need of pile foundation in construction industry. Pro.Kaniraj from IIT Delhi presented about the soil layer formation in river soil and design of pile foundation in using software. Plaxis software demo was given to students to understand the software basics and its applications in soil industry. In the afternoon session a practical demo on soil testing (SBC of soil) was done using bore drilling machine conducted by Geo invest pvt ltd. Overall the workshop provides an overview of soil field application and testing related to current engineering problems
