The current elected Executive Committee, led by Dr. A.K. Nanda, has decided to conduct a series of Practical Workshops / Demonstrations in the term 2013-14, aimed at encouraging hands-on engineering and fun interactions. We are happy to announce that the first such Workshop was successfully conducted on 23rd November 2013 at an active project site at Sector 4, Noida.

A team of experts from Cengrs Geotechnica Pvt. Ltd. (CENGRS) conducted a workshop-cum-demonstration on "Cross-hole & Down-hole Seismic Test" in Noida, U.P. The team at CENGRS drew from their experience of over 150 cross-hole / down-hole tests successfully completed at various project locations across the country up to a maximum depth of 100 m.

Members of IGS and interested candidates from various related fields were invited. About 35 members attended the event. The workshop bought together professional engineers, academicians and researchers from various private and government organizations, such as CRRI, EIL, IIT, AIMIL, ICT, CSMRS, Archohm, Avantha Power and many more.

Mr. Sorabh Gupta (Sr. Project Engineer, CENGRS) made a brief presentation, explaining the theoretical basis of the tests and the intricacies of their practical application. This was followed by a practical demonstration by Mr. Ishwar Singh (Engineering Geologist, CENGRS). There was an open discussion, exchange of ideas and clarification of queries.

Instruments used for some other advanced testing techniques, such as low-strain Pile Integrity, High-strain dynamic load testing using PDA, Seismic Refraction Tests, etc. were also displayed on site for the benefit of the participants.

The event concluded with members appreciating the workshop and conveyed appreciation to IGS and to the CENGRS team.
