The discipline of Geotechnical Engineering has expanded rapidly in the past years to include a wide variety of applications to infrastructure, buildings, mining and environmental sectors. This presentation illustrates novel approaches and methods of forensic geotechnical engineering origin and cause investigations, technical assessment related to repair/remediation strategies and construction risk assessment, monitoring and mitigation.
After an initial introduction on general concepts of forensic geotechnical engineering and geotechnical failures, the presentation will focus on innovative approaches and technologies in forensic investigations. Eventually, a number of real case histories will be discussed.
This webinar will facilitate the following learning outcomes to insurance adjusters and lawyers that provide services involving property losses:
• Understand the types of properties and losses that will require geotechnical expertise to perform adequate forensic engineering investigations.
• Understand the latest methodologies to investigate structural failures due to geotechnical causes.
• Innovative methods and technologies to optimize the effectiveness of geotechnical investigations.
