Research, Development and Training

Success of a system relies on its pace with future needs. In this regard, P.O.R has established Research, Development and Training Department.
The purpose of this department is to keep the knowledge of personnel up-to-date and, to improve the quality, and to provide education for engineers, supervisors and executive crew.

Training Activities

Some of the training activities carried out & provided are as follow:

  • Necessity of geotechnical studies
  • Land slides
  • Deep excavations
  • Urban excavations
  • Offshore geotechnics
  • NATM

Research Activities

Some of the research activities include participation in preparation of:

  • Dynamic compaction standard
  • Urban excavations standard
  • Rubble mound breakwaters standard
  • Stability of quay walls  against earthquake
  • Instruction for offshore geotechnical works

Development Activities

Based on its scientific experience and technical knowledge, this consultant makes and develops equipment, some of which are:

  • Jack up barge for offshore geotechnical excavation
  • Unsaturated triaxial test, direct shear test and permeability test apparatus through Partnership with Tarbiat Modares University
