Training Program on “Geotechnical and Earthquake Engineering Field Investigation Technologies and Laboratory Tests” for RAJUK Officials and Engineers (Phase 1: July 15-31, 2018; Phase 2: August 05-September 08, 2018)

The training program was arranged for the engineers of Urban and Resilience Project: RAJUK Part. It focused on the geotechnical investigations and earthquake engineering filed tests. There were three parts of the training- classroom lectures, practical demonstrations and field visits. Resource persons of the training were Md. Aminul Islam, Tasnim Tarannum Isaba, Ishfaq Aziz, Shamontee Aziz from BUET-JIDPUS. There were two phases where two different groups of engineers participated in the training program. It was a very good opportunity to introduce the young engineers to the sophisticated testing facilities such as Cone Penetration Test, Ground Penetrating Radar Test, Down-hole Seismic Test, Microtremor Test, Electrical Resistivity Test etc.
