In his lecture, Engineer Mr. Darshan described about the major equipments for Piling, uncertainties and challenges which are usually faced by a site engineer. Moving ahead, he elaborated about the process of building a port, various types of information to be collected in order to carry out the work as site engineer. He elaborated on how site engineers do sound tests in order to ascertain about the depth of piling driven as per the designs. He further elaborated about the unique methodology adopted to lift the bailor stuck inside pile in their site. The lecture has proven to be very informative for the students and faculties by giving exposure to wide aspect about the role of site engineer and the basic knowledge about constructing a port in the field of construction technology and management.
