10/04/2021: LIVE INTERACTIVE WEBINAR, Geotechnical Engineering: Testing for Design and Construction, Monday, October 4, 2021, 11am-1pm Eastern
- Identify at least two quality assurance processes in the testing of geotechnical materials to preserve the safety of the public during design and construction projects.
- Describe at least two geotechnical laboratory indices that may be used to determine the engineering properties of soils so as not to pose a threat to the health, safety, and welfare of the public.
- Given a compression index for a soil sample, determine the correlation between other consolidation parameters.
- Determine the most applicable laboratory soil strength test for any given soil sample.
- Based on the grain size of sand, determine an approximate permeability coefficient for design.
- Select an approximate optimum moisture content for a soil sample that has been classified using the Unified Soil Classification System to establish appropriate safety and health.
