Geotechnical Checklist: GTR Review Checklist for Spread Footings Mobile App
The Geotechnical Checklist: GTR Review Checklist for Spread Footings mobile app allows you to replace your paper checklist with a cell phone, tablet or even a computer.
How does it work?
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. The app checklist and technical guidelines have been developed to aid engineers in their review of projects containing major and unusual geotechnical features. 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. Are spread footing recommended for foundation support? If not, are reasons for not using them discussed? Is recommended bottom of footing elevation and the reason for the recommendation (e.g., based on frost depth, estimated scour depth, or depth to competent bearing material) given? Have the materials been adequately described on which the footing is to be placed so the project inspector can verify that material is as expected?
