Presentation Transcript
The very main purpose of Geo-Technical Investigation is to conduct soil investigation for the site where building construction needs to take place.
information on geo technical investigation
Information on Geo Technical Investigation
  • Geotechnical investigation is one of the major actions to be followed in the field of constructions.
  • A Geotechnical Company has a key role in setting up a team investigation with the geotechnologist.
soil exploration
Soil exploration
  • Soil exploration is a part of site investigation and it determines suitability of the site proposed construction.
  • This mainly helps in knowing which type of foundation is required for the proposed project making the safety measures before piling.
process involved in geo technical investigation
Process Involved in Geo-Technical Investigation:
  • Soil parameters testing for design purposes.
  • Field geotechnical investigations.
  • Laboratory testing of soil for design construction.
factors while handling geotechnical site investigation
Factors While Handling Geotechnical Site Investigation
  • The effort and detail of the geotechnical site investigation to obtain sufficient and correct site information to select and design a foundation for a building in permafrost is complex.

It depends on:

a) Design criteria of the proposed structure;


b) Historic knowledge of general site conditions and building performance;

c) Drilling equipment availability;


d) Time of year the work needs to be done may determine the geotechnical site investigation method and finally;

e) The overall costs.

report preparation using geotechnical data
Report Preparation using Geotechnical Data
  • The collection of geotechnical data and the preparation of a report for a proposed structure should be considered in four phases:

1. Project definition prepared by the owner in conjunction with an architect, if selected.

2. The project definition consists of architectural/engineering foundation criteria such as loading and settlement; on or above ground structure; service life of structure, and proposed design/construction schedule.


3. Preliminary site and project evaluation conducted by the geotechnical consultant selected for the geotechnical site investigation.

4. It consists of preliminary site review of past geotechnical investigations of nearby sites and a selection of likely foundation design(s) based on published literature and the geotechnical consultant knowledge of the site.


5. This preliminary evaluation and a consensus by the owner are used to develop the detail of the proposed geotechnical site investigation.

6. Geotechnical site investigation (test holes and sampling) and laboratory testing for soils characteristics.

7. Geotechnical report preparation with recommended foundation system options.
