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.

  This course is designed for: Experienced geoprofessionals

   Duration: 30 minutes
