Geotechnical Report: GTR Review Checklist for Embankments Over Soft Ground Mobile App
The Geotechnical Report: GTR Review Checklist for Embankments Over Soft Ground mobile app
How does it work?
covers the basic information and recommendations that should be presented in geotechnical reports for specific geotechnical features: centerline cuts and embankments, embankments over soft ground, landslides, retaining structures, structure foundations and material sites. Where embankments must be built over soft ground (such as soft clays, organic silts, or peat), stability and settlement of the fill should be carefully evaluated. The app includes the following information provided in the project geotechnical report: Embankment Stability, Settlement of Subsoil, Embankments Over Soft Ground, Construction Considerations, Landslide Corrections, Cross-section, Text and Construction considerations. A response other than (yes) for any of the checklist questions is cause to contact the appropriate geotechnical engineer for a clarification and/or to discuss the project.
