About the course

The NZ Geotechnical Society's liquefaction guideline was published just before the Canterbury 2010-2011 earthquakes. With learnings from the earthquakes, this guideline was updated as part of the series 'Earthquake geotechnical engineering practice guidelines' released by MBIE and NZ Geotechnical Society. It is now called Module 3: Identification, assessment and mitigation of liquefaction hazards

This course will:

  • help you navigate Module 3
  • show you where you can find the information 
  • go over the key changes from the first edition guidance.

It would be useful for you to either have a hard copy of Module 3 beside you, or have it open on a separate screen/tab.

               


  Who is it for: Geo-professionals with a background in soil mechanics and soil liquefaction theory

   Duration: 30 minutes

About the course

The guidance Rockfall: Design considerations for Passive Protection Structures has been released by MBIE. It was developed in response to the Canterbury and Kaikoura earthquakes.

This learning resource will help you understand the guidance and how it may be applied in practice. It follows Robin, a geoprofessional as he analyses a potential rockfall situation and what he undertakes to find the best solution.

It would be useful for you to either have a hard copy of the guidance beside you, or have it open on a separate screen/tab.

You will be required to login using RealMe and then register on the site by entering your name, email address and role.

               


  Who is it for: Geoprofessionals involved in the design of passive rockfall protection structures and regional/territorial authorities involved in consenting

   Duration: 20-30 minutes

About the course

Undertaking adequate geotechnical investigations to understand likely ground performance in earthquakes is an essential aspect of good and economic building design.

The Module 4 guideline Earthquake resistant foundation design is part of the series 'Earthquake geotechnical engineering practice guidelines' released by MBIE and NZ Geotechnical Society in 2016.

This course will:

  • help you navigate Module 4
  • show you where you can find the key information on the topic
  • check your knowledge on important aspects of foundation design.

It would be useful for you to either have a hard copy of Module 4 beside you, or have it open on a separate screen/tab.

               


  Who is it for: Experienced geoprofessionals
