Geotechnical Checklist: GTR Review Checklist for Retaining Structures Mobile App
The app checklist and technical guidelines have been developed to aid engineers in their review of projects containing major and unusual geotechnical features.
How does it work?
The major information and recommendations that should be addressed in project geotechnical reports. Reviews made during the preliminary stage of project development will commonly consist of reviewing the geotechnical report only, since detailed plans and specifications may not yet be prepared. Is it proposed to bid alternate wall designs? Are acceptable reasons given for the choice and/or exclusion of certain wall types? If wall will be placed on compressible foundation soils, is estimated total, differential and time rate of settlement given? Are excavation requirements covered including safe slopes for open excavations or need for sheeting or shoring? The Geotechnical Checklist: GTR Review Checklist for Retaining Structures mobile app allows you to replace your paper checklist with an Android or iPhone. The mobile form includes fields to document items such as date, site location/GPS, notes, inspector and captures inspector's signature. Once the mobile app is filled out a secure PDF is generated. The PDF is easy to share, and a copy is stored in your account for your bridge engineering and construction records. You can also use the App Builder to personalize and customize this mobile form.
