Geotechnical Engineering

Geotechnical engineering is a boundary value problem. Appropriate and well planned subsurface investigation program consisting of test boring, test pit, geophysical test, and laboratory test is the essence of good foundation design. Very detailed site specific geotechnical and geophysical data as well as a thorough understanding of  the local geologic environment are essential to the proper prediction of local site effects and seismic design. Highly variable geologic conditions along with a lack of strong ground motion recordings create uncertainty in predicting site response.
