Geotechnical Measuements & Explorations

Patra, N. R. (Nihar Ranjan)

Subsurface exploration, planning, drilling and sampling techniques. In-situ field testing and laboratory investigation of soil, including advanced equipments, instrumentation, data acquisition, and measurement techniques. Field tests: SPT, CPT, DCPT, Pressuremeter, Dilatometer, Permeability, etc. Lab tests: Index property tests, Consolidation test, direct shear, triaxial (static and cyclic) and simple shear testing under stress- and strain-control with pore pressure measurements. Relevant theoretical concepts and data interpretations for determination of engineering properties of soils, and their application to geotechnical design. Preparation of site-investigation reports.
