Exploring the Levels of Geoforensic Investigation:
Geotech Engineering and Testing’s geoscientific engineering services incorporate a systematic approach through multi-level investigations to uncover the root causes and factors that contribute to geotechnical failures.
These levels include:
Preliminary site assessment:
Conduct an initial site assessment to gather information about its history, site condition and available data. This will help identify potential problem areas and evaluate if further investigation is required.
Conduct extensive field work such as soil sampling, site inspections, and geophysical surveys to collect data on the geological and geotechnical characteristics of the site. This field survey provides important information on soil composition, stability and possible collapse mechanisms.
Laboratory tests are performed on soil and rock samples to analyze their physical and mechanical properties. This level of investigation helps to understand soil behavior, strength, permeability and other relevant factors that contribute to geotechnical defects.
Data Analysis and Interpretation:
Analysis of collected data, integration with geological and geotechnical information, and use of advanced software and modeling techniques to interpret results. This level of investigation provides a deeper understanding of site behavior and helps identify the root cause of geotechnical failures.
Expert Report and Recommendations:
Present a comprehensive report outlining findings including causes, contributing factors, and possible mitigation or remediation solutions. Our geotechnical engineering and testing experts provide clear, actionable recommendations based on thorough research.
Key Lab Tests in Geoforensic Engineering:
Geoforensics involves performing a variety of laboratory tests to analyze soil and rock samples and gain valuable insight into their properties and behavior.
