Summary

Subsurface investigation is the most important phase of any civil engineering construction or development activities. The geologic conditions can be extremely complex, variable, and subject to change with time; soil test borings and in-situ tests are employed to obtain subsoil information. Resistivity Imaging (RI) is a non-destructive, fast and cost-effective method of site investigation and soil characterization.

Site Investigation using Resistivity Imaging aims to summarize pertinent details of RI in site investigation for geotechnical and geo-environmental applications. It aims to bridge the gap that currently exists between the geotechnical/geo-environmental and geophysical engineering community. The geotechnical and geo-environmental engineers will be able to use annd understand geophysical data and utilize the information for their design.

Features:

  • First comprehensive handbook aimed at engineers that summarises pertinent details of Resitivity Imaging (RI) in site investigation for geotechnical and geo-environmental applications.
  • for geotechnical and geoenvironmental engineers, making it possible to interpret geophysical data and utilize the information for their design.
  • explanining the advantages of RI over conventional site investigations: continuous image, large coverage, low cost, quick and easy data processing.

It will be a comprehensive handbook for the application of RI in geotechnical and geo-environmental site investigations.
