A Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) Enterprise Scholarship is now being offered by Flinders University and Civil Group (Aust) Pty Ltd. The purpose of this scholarship is to support new research into the investigative drilling (ID) method for ground investigation. In the context of this research project, the College of Science and Engineering at Flinders University and Civil Group (Aust) Pty Ltd are working together to develop a framework for geotechnical investigations utilizing the ID method.
This will provide a rigorous technical basis for the method’s general industry use and acceptance in geotechnical strata investigation. Civil Group is an expansive construction and drilling company that offers its services to the transmission line construction, renewable energy construction, mining construction, and infrastructure construction industries. The company brings a substantial amount of industry experience to the project. Additionally, the Flinders College of Science and Engineering is dedicated to conducting advanced research in geomechanics, with the goals of addressing real-world issues and promoting sustainable development. The college also possesses complementary research strengths in geotechnical site characterization and foundation systems. With the help of one another, we are approaching this difficult research topic with the goal of developing novel approaches to its investigation.
