i. To develop the full-time students’ ability to carry out standard shear strength tests in the field.
ii. To develop the full-time and part-time students’ ability to interpret data obtained during the desk study phase of a ground investigation.
iii. To develop the full-time and part-time students understanding of soil geology and interpretation of geological maps.
1. Prepare a desk study report based on the envirocheck data provided for the Newton Rigg College, Penrith, site (the fields at the eastern part of the Newton Rigg campus should be the centre for your desk study based discussions – full-time students are expected to add a site description, but part-time students are NOT expected to do that part because they will not have been able to walk across the site). NOTE: An Exemplar Desk Study Report is provided on Moodle to provide an example of the structure of your report (simply delete the parts that are not relevant to this specific site) BUT that does NOT necessarily focus as much on the GEOTECHNICAL aspects as Module CIE5005 requires. Avoid spending excess time on the environmental aspects, but try to relate any environmental aspects that would form part of a geotechnical engineer’s brief. Identifying and discussing geotechnical risks and likelihood plus ways of overcoming or mitigating those risks is the main focus of your work.
2. Provide a geological summary for the three sites identified on the Rochdale Geology map sheet provided on Moodle.
3. Summarise the field work carried out and interpret the shear strength profile across the site using the data your group obtained.
