Below is the uncorrected machine-read text of this chapter, intended to provide our own search engines and external engines with highly rich, chapter-representative searchable text of each book. Geotechnical risks generally pose the greatest risk to transportation projects because adverse subsurface conditions can have significant impacts on public safety, project schedules, life cycle costs, and environmental sustainability.
A sound subsurface investigation program can mitigate these risks and yield significant dividends for state transportation agencies in terms of cost savings and timely completion of projects. Thus, it is prudent for transportation agencies to include geotechnical investigations as a part of their project development process. This manual provides information and guidelines to help geoprofessionals i. Appendices A through C contain information regarding investigations that are not typically conducted as part of the routine subsurface investigations but are conducted either during construction or operation to monitor performance and assess the condition of existing geotechnical features.
The following is a synopsis of the content included in each of the chapters and appendices. General strategies for conducting a sound subsurface investigation program are also provided. Special considerations for. Geophysical methods are often useful during the initial phases of a site investigation program to efficiently gain an understanding of the overall subsurface conditions, including stratigraphy and the location and size of potential anomalies.
The locations of subsequent borings and soundings can then be optimized to investigate areas of concern identified from the geophysical surveys. Geophysical methods are also useful to estimate some engineering properties of subsurface materials directly. Chapter 5 includes information to aid geoprofessionals with evaluating the different in situ geotechnical tests commonly used for characterizing soil and rock and with selecting the appropriate in situ test s for an investigation.
In situ tests can efficiently collect abundant data to help define subsurface stratigraphy, evaluate vertical and horizontal variability, and obtain geotechnical engineering parameters for analysis and design. The in situ tests presented in Chapter 5 for soils include the standard penetration test SPT , cone- penetration test CPT , flat plate dilatometer test DMT , vane shear, and pressuremeter; and the in situ tests for rock are plate load test PLT, also known as plate jacking test , flat jacking test FJT , rock dilatometer test, large field direct shear DS test, rock borehole shear test, and borehole cameras.
Methods for establishing groundwater levels and measuring pressure heads e. Chapter 8 presents the laboratory testing methods commonly used to characterize soil and rock. The following topics are presented:. The chapter also includes some guidance on compiling, preparing, and presenting geotechnical information. Appendix B also highlights how geotechnical instrumentation can be used to resolve legal disputes and manage geotechnical assets.
Appendix C provides guidelines for characterizing the integrity of the existing bridge foundation elements condition assessment and assessing their load carrying capacity. US Customary Units, 8th Edition. Department of Transportation, Washington, DC. Geotechnical Site Characterization. Geotechnical Engineering Circular No. Federal Highway Administration, U. Geotechnical Investigations. Engineer Manual , U. This report reflects the changes in the approaches and methods used for geotechnical site characterization that the geotechnical community has developed and adopted in the past thirty years.
The updated manual provides information and guidelines for planning and executing a geotechnical site investigation program. It may also be used to develop a ground model for planning, design, construction, and asset management phases of a project.

Developed by the AASHTO Committee on Construction, it offers guidance for developing transportation project contract specifications and is considered the national standard for best practices in highway and road construction. The 10th edition — which replaces the 9 th edition, published 12 years ago — focuses on electronic contract submittals, updated environmental requirements, and revised materials specifications. It is also available in three formats: as a paperback book; as a PDF download for single- or five- or user groupings; and as a discounted set that includes both the paperback version and the single-user PDF download version.

Ты видел кольцо. Двухцветный замер. Как правильно ответить. - Viste el anillo? - настаивал обладатель жуткого голоса. Двухцветный утвердительно кивнул, убежденный, что честность - лучшая политика.
Беккер когда-то сам заблудился в его узких проходах. Набирая скорость на последнем отрезке Матеус-Гаго, он увидел впереди горой вздымающийся готический собор XI века. Рядом с собором на сто двадцать метров вверх, прямо в занимающуюся зарю, поднималась башня Гиральда. Это и был Санта-Крус, квартал, в котором находится второй по величине собор в мире, а также живут самые старинные и благочестивые католические семьи Севильи.
