Pipeline Geotechnics


The Pipeline Geotechnics workshop provides a geotechnical background and a detailed introduction to pipe-soil interaction.


This workshop is recommended for pipeline engineers who require a more thorough understanding of soil mechanics issues. Attendees will leave the workshop with a working knowledge of the principles and practices involved in defining soil design parameters for pipeline design. The sessions include a summary of the current practice.

“Excellent content pitched at a level understood by all delegates. Questions and answers were well received and the speakers were able to fully answer and technically competent”
