Workshop on Foundation Engineering
The Geotechnical Division planned a series of workshops on various topics of geotechnical engineering. The target participants are young engineers in the geotechnical disciplines and also civil and structural engineers who are interested in geotechnical designs. These workshops aim to introduce some basic geotechnical knowledge useful for understanding the current geotechnical practice in Hong Kong.
The workshop on Foundation Engineering will be held on two Saturday mornings, on 18 & 25 May 2019, respectively. The topics to be covered in the workshop include introduction of the types of shallow foundations and pile foundations, an overview of design theories and relevant design codes, settlement analyses, methods of construction, instrumentation and testing, and case studies.
