So, Why Do You Want to Write a GBR?
Since 1974, scores of papers, articles, conferences, and legal documents have been dedicated to explaining how to write and/or how to use a Geotechnical Baseline Report (GBR). But the...

Improving Construction Quality by Seeing What's Hidden Underground
One of the challenges of deep foundation projects is the inability to see what's being built at depth. Construction is hidden below ground, in soil or rock conditions that...

A Probabilistic Approach to Karstic Foundation Variability
Karst is a landscape formed in soluble rocks caused by movement of water that has become slightly acidic. Limestone, dolomite, and gypsum are vulnerable to these influences and may be...

Journal of Nanomechanics and Micromechanics
The Journal of Nanomechanics and Micromechanics brings science and applications together on nanoscale and nanostructured materials, with emphasis on mechanics, processing, characterization, design, modeling,...

Grouting Methods
This chapter discusses common grouting methods used in underground applications in both soil and rock. Jet, compaction, permeation, and hydrofracture grouting methods are frequently used...

Grout Hole Layout
The drilling method, either rotary or percussion, and the type and size of the drills to be used are selected based on such factors as rock type, depth of holes required, working space...
