Q: How do you decide how to investigate a site (i.e. number of test locations) and the techniques you use?
A: For geotechnical work there is no set answer. It depends on the anticipated ground conditions and what is being built. With those two things in mind defining the scope of the works comes down to experience and a clear understanding of what each investigation technique will give you. The investigation has to provide sufficient information about the ground, its likely variability and the required geotechnical parameters for design.
Acid Sulphate Soils investigations have a far more prescriptive approach that are detailed in state legislation.
Q: How do you investigate a site where the contractor requires guidance on rock excavation?
Q: How do you assess the slope stability of a site?
