Engineering-geologic survey

Engineering-geologic survey is performed with the aim to evaluate engineering-geologic conditions of a construction site and to obtain soil characteristics in the area of reaction of the geologic environment with designed constructions, as well as initial data acquisition for carrying out works on protection of engineering constructions against aggressive impact of the environment.
The above survey is performed by studying physical-geologic conditions, geologic structure, hydrogeologic conditions, main physical-mechanic soil features, chemical composition of underground waters and corrosive soil activity.

Scope of works:

  • collection and processing survey data of the previous years;
  • route survey (reconnaissance survey);
  • mine footage   (drilling of engineering-geologic wells);
  • geophysical survey;
  • field soil survey (static, dynamic sensing, stamp testing);
  • hydrogeologic survey;
  • laboratory tests of soil, underground and surface waters;
  • soil test of existing buildings and constructions’ bases;
  • cameral data processing (drafting of an engineering-geologic profile, well pillars);
  • fixed surveillance   (local monitoring of geological environment components);
  • forecasting of changes in engineering-geologic conditions;
  • danger and risk assessment of geologic and engineering-geologic processes;
  • drafting of a technical report with conclusions and recommended strength and deformation parameters.

 

Based on the results of engineering-geologic survey a technical report is issued containing data of physical-geographic conditions of the surveyed area, geologic-lithologic soil description, hydrologic conditions, physical-geologic processes, physical-mechanic soil features, aggressive and corrosive water and soil features, forecasts, conclusions, recommendations.
