Engineering-geological explorations


Tasks of engineering-geological exploration of the construction site:

In order for the designer or contractor to know the geological conditions on the construction site, the engineering-geological exploration solves the following basic problems:

  • assessment of geomorphological conditions of the construction site,
  • exploration of the composition of the foundation soil,
  • determination of bearing capacity and compressibility of the foundation soil,
  • evaluation of the impact of groundwater on the foundation of buildings,
  • determination of the method of excavation work and determination of the classes of ductility of soils and rocks of the foundation soil,
  • foundation of buildings in difficult geotechnical conditions,
  • engineering-geological evaluation of the foundation soil of construction sites.
