Feedback wanted for proposed new training course

Eurocode 7 now requires every construction involving ground engineering to have a "Ground Model". Despite being a Formative requirement in the Code, the Code does not define what a Ground Model is, how it should be generated, the competences required to produce it and its use.

This newly proposed one-day course will provide professionals with an engineering background with the fundamental knowledge required to generate and use a "Ground Model" in accordance with EC7 (2nd Generation).

The planned course is designed to provide an appreciation of what a Ground Model is and what it is meant to do, and cover:

  • How the Ground Model can reflect the Geotechnical Complexity Class of the works and its associated zone of influence
  • What the model should contain and from where that information can be obtained
  • How it can be generated and presented (as a word model, as vertical cross sections, as maps, as block diagrams, and as computer assisted 3D images and data sets)
  • Checks on the accuracy and reliability of a Ground Model and how it handles uncertainties
  • How the model interfaces between the Ground Model and the Geotechnical Design Model and Ground Reference Conditions
  • The on-going role of a ground Model as a record of conditions encountered to the end of construction and into the serviceability of the works

Full details of the course proposal can be found here.
