Soil Borings

soil borings

Geotechnical investigations are performed by geotechnical engineers or engineering geologists to obtain information on the soil and rock properties to design foundations for structures. Subsurface exploration usually involves soil sampling and laboratory tests of soil samples. Soil boring is an essential step that must be taken before construction can begin. Boring is a standard technique used to survey soil by taking several shallow cores out of the sediment.
