The Trenchless Technology Center (TTC) at Louisiana Tech University and Purdue University’s Construction Engineering & Management in conjunction with the ASCE’S Utility Engineering and Surveying Institute (UESI) have teamed to hold the 8th TTC UIS School in 2021. The event is scheduled for May 24-28.
This short course will give practitioners the knowledge and tools to provide competent utility investigations in accordance with accepted national standards (ASCE 38) and to defend against claims through this knowledge and its documentation. In addition to the classroom lectures, practical sessions will be held where participants will be offered hands-on experience with ground penetrating radar (GPR), pipe cable locators (PCL), etc. This 5-day school will be taught by the foremost experts in the geophysics and subsurface utility engineering field.
This 5-day school has been designed for:
- Engineers, surveyors and project managers providing deliverables that include results and depictions of utility investigations.
- Consulting engineers, employees of utility companies, state DOTs/local highway agencies, regulatory agencies, local governments, etc.
- Design engineers for infrastructure projects with significant expected utility congestion.
Course directors are Dr. Tom Iseley, Purdue University; Dr. John Matthews, Louisiana Tech University; and Jim Anspach, J.H. Anspach Consulting.
