Professional Development

New Albion Geotechnical provides short courses and in-house training workshops for engineering professionals on topics ranging from geotechnical earthquake engineering to soft ground engineering and soil improvement. The content of a professional training course is developed to the client’s specifications and tailored to the specific consultancy, agency, or regulatory organization. Course material and hands-on examples of analysis and design are developed using information provided by clients from their active projects and archives.

Instruction and training are provided at all levels including: introductory applications, technical “re-freshers” with updates of the latest developments from practice and academics, and advanced applications for technical specialists. Courses are developed to satisfy local requirements for Professional Development Hours and/or Continuing Education Credits.

Specific course topics have included;

  • Seismic hazard assessment and ground motion characterization.
  • Integrated in-situ and laboratory investigations supporting site characterization for static and seismic applications.
  • Numerical analysis of dynamic soil response during earthquakes.
  • Cyclic behavior of soils involving liquefaction/cyclic soil degradation.
  • Static and seismic slope stability and dynamic ground failure.
  • Soft soil engineering and soil improvement.
  • Numerical analysis of dynamic soil-foundation-structure interaction for bridge foundations, port waterfront structures, and coastal infrastructure.
