You can catch-up on details or any broadcast and downloads here.


An interactive presentation for Students, Graduates, Apprentices and Technicians by John Moran CEng MICE and Susan Hawkes EngTech MICE.

This session will look at the behaviour of ground underneath a loaded area by setting up a real load test that can commonly be seen on any construction site; that is using plant to lift loads and using the plant out-riggers to transfer that load to the ground.

Come and join a bit of fun in which they will set up a problem and see if you can assess the level of safety we might have and compare it with the safe operating conditions of a typical piece of plant.
