Use and application of Piezocone Penetration testing in Presumpscot Formation
Abstract: This paper examines the advantages and limitations of CPTu and SCPTu as an exploration method for geotechnical engineering of Presumpscot Formation. Discussion will include typical results of CPTu and SCPTu data for Presumpscot Formation, application and use for settlement prediction, bearing capacity analysis, slope stability evaluation, and seismic design considerations. Intent is to provide an overview of the Use and Application of Piezocone Penetration Testing for the Presumpscot Formation in...

Case Study - Panama Canal: Boat Towed 3D Resistivity Surveys
77 km Long 3D Canal Floor Sediment/Rock Study for Dredging EstimatesBoat towed streaming dipole-dipole resistivity data were successfully used to estimate geotechnical properties of the canal floor in order to reduce dredging costs for an ongoing Panama Canal expansion program.Site: The 77-km long Panama Canal with 773 line-km of resistivity data collected at 25 m transect spacing inside the canal(fresh water) and then out into the Pacific and Caribbean approach areas (salt water).Instrument: SuperStingR8 with...
Time Is Important To Help You Find the Best Provider of Geotechnical Monitoring Services
If you visit any city in the world, you will find multiple tall buildings where people reside with their near and dear ones. In the good old days, building such tall structures often took several days to complete. However, with the advanced technologies being used in these modern times, constructing a new building hardly takes a few days. For a common man, it is not possible to understand the planning involved in such a large scale construction work. Experts have to check the soil and land of a projected spot to...
