Site Investigation and It’s Importance

The process of exploring to characterize or define small scale properties of substrata at construction sites is unique to geotechnical engineering. In other engineering disciplines, material properties are specified during design, or before construction or manufacture, and then controlled to meet the specification. Unfortunately, subsurface properties cannot be specified; they must be deduced through exploration. …

In-situ and laboratory determination of small-strain stiffness-suction-moisture relationship and its application

(Even though it’s a technical article, I shall describe it in a mixture of a formal and a narrative tone.) The title of my Master’s degree research was, “Insitu and Laboratory determination of small-strain stiffness-suction-moisture relationship and its application”. First, let’s explain the technical terms used so that what I was looking for becomes apparent …
