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...

Guidelines for specification writing for Deep Soil Mixing
Abstract: Deep Soil Mixing (DSM) was recently introduced into the United States as a geotechnical and environmental construction method. Primarily, DSM is used for deep foundation improvements. With the onset of this new technology, the need for guidelines for specification writing and the interpretation of testing results arises. This need would include guidelines for specifying construction procedures and equipment, field testing. ASTM standards, implementation of Quality Control plans, mix designs, and interpret...
Jet Grouting in contaminated soils
AbstractThe jet grouting technique has gained wider acceptance in the U.S. over the past few years as a viable tool for such geotechnical applications as the improvement of foundation soils, slope stabilization, and underpinning (Welsh and Burke, 1991). Jet grouting; however, has recently been used as a method of performing block stabilization of contaminated soils as well as for the formation of barriers for the control of contaminant migration in the environmental field. The two case studies given herein will...
