USGS summarizes the technology concept. Discuss on the building site using a whole arsenal of various scientific disciplines of Geology: hydrogeology, giomorfo, tectonics, geophysics, soil sciences and other sciences consider the geological characteristics of the soil and prevent assertions when implementing projects of buildings and constructions.
Geological Engineering investigations industry, all normally works in several ways: field work and laboratory and Office studies results with subsequent drafting of the report.
In the stage of fieldwork conducted a detailed survey of the construction site of the future and the surrounding area, studying outcrops visible (bump out of rock on Earth’s surface). All of this reinforces the proper construction of the main works Dal graphics. Usually take place behind closed excavation of special geological section studies and fence for their cores for analysis in the laboratory. The depth and location of wells largely depends on the type of object, and geological structure of the area, which produced the survey. In those sites where those maintenance chart to top of complex objects, just come off, drilling field testing soil shear and compression set of geophysical research. In the lab, specialized devices, physical and mechanical properties of the Earth, and from these breeds.
And the final stage is the final Assembly of the results of research and the compilation of a written report on the matter, the definition of parameters for each soil heterogeneity and future forecasts possible behavior and group recommendations and suggestions for the design of organizations. And only then can be considered construction and geological survey confirmed the results.
