One day workshop was organised by Sky Scrapers Society on “Standard Penetration Test” for the 8th semester students. Experts fromBhagwanDass and Sons, Roorkee performed live SPT for the estimating bearing capacity of soil by collecting soil sample from field.
Prior to the construction of engineering structures, site investigation is required in order to determine the suitability of the site for the intended structure. The results of the investigation furnish information on the engineering properties of earth materials and groundwater conditions of the site. During the field exploration phase, in situ engineering field tests are carried out. These include standard penetration tests (SPT).
