MODULE-3 Earth Resistivity Test (per IS 3043:1987): Soil resistivity directly affects the design of a grounding (Earthing) electrode system and is the prime factor that determines the resistance to earth of a grounding electrode or grounding electrode system. Therefore, prior to the design and installation of a new grounding electrode system, the proposed location shall be tested to determine the soil's resistivity.

Module-4 : Load testing

Pile load Test (Compression and Lateral)
Vertical Load Test (Compression) as per IS: 2911 (Part IV) - 1985
two types of Vertical Load Tests (in compression):-
