Determining what lies beneath the surface of our roads is an important part of creating safe thoroughfares and streets. Used to identify subsurface materials, geotechnical engineering can do just that. Some common applications are: Characterizing subsurface materials, like bedrock depth, rock type, layer boundaries, water table, groundwater flow, locating fractures, weak zones, expansive clays, and […]
