VIDEO: An Introduction to Drilling and Sampling in Geotechnical Practice

This 35-minute video (YouTube) presents an overview of typical drilling and sampling methods in Geotechnical Engineering practice. Topics include types of drill rigs, rotary wash drilling, solid and hollow stem auguring, SPT testing, thin-walled tube sampling, Pitcher barrel sampling, rock coring, and sample disturbance.

We would appreciate a brief email letting us know if you download the video and found it useful in your teaching and/or learning about geotechnical engineering. After all, our motivation in sharing the video is to see it get used. Thanks.
