Geotechnical studies

Geotechnical studies provide data needed for solid and accurate plans for construction. They also assess the geotechnical characteristics of foundation soil in the area where projects will eventually be built and developed.

Geotechnical studies are done through field exploration and laboratory testing to obtain the stratigraphic profile of specific area of study, they measure the allowable load capacity and allowable levels settlements.

Geophysical assessment by Seismic Refraction, Multichannel Analysis of Surface Waves in Two-Dimensional Arrangement (MASW 2D) and Electric Tomography Bidimensional as part of the project "Geophysics Jobs in Phase 0 of Leach Pad.

The evaluation consisted in geophysical exploration procedure of field trials by seismic refraction, MASW 2D through which the power of the layers and the interpretation of speeds P (Vs) waves and S (Vs) waves were determined besides the evaluation of dynamic parameters within the field.

The geophysical evaluation also involved conducting field exploration by tests of electrical tomography, whereby the values ​​of resistivity and chargeability of the area were determined to visualize the electrical properties of the subsurface.

Seismic geophysical exploration was carried out in order to determine the velocity of propagation Vp and Vs of ground in areas of study by testing surface seismic refraction.

Geophysical exploration were conducted of the ground by Seismic Refraction, Multichannel Analysis of Surface Waves (MASW) and Microtremor Array Measurement (MAM) methods, by which the power of the layers was determined along with the interpretation of speeds P waves (Vs) and S waves (Vs) of materials and evaluation of dynamic parameters that form the soil foundation.

Geophysical exploration was carried out in order to determine the velocity of propagation of Vp and Vs in areas of study by testing surface seismic refraction with measurement of P waves. MASW and MAM tests were executed to obtain S-wave profiles, values ​​that will determine the thicknesses of the layers within the areas under evaluation.
