John Poullain, PE
This two-hour online course discusses guidelines for reviewing geotechnical features of a project during the P&S development stage. This course covers data and specific information required for subsurface soil and water conditions for major and unusual geotechnical features. It presents P&S review checklists, which target elements such as embankments and excavations, structural foundations and material sites. The student will gain an understanding of the types of subsurface investigations and the requirements for the minimum number of borings, spacing and depths of borings, samplings and testing for various types of projects and soils.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
