Geotechnical Checklist: GTR Review for Ground Improvement Techniques Mobile App
The Geotechnical Checklist: GTR Review for Ground Improvement Techniques mobile app allows you to replace your paper checklist with a handheld mobile device like a smartphone or tablet.
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. For wick drains, do recommendations include the coefficient of consolidation for horizontal drainage, ch, and the length and spacing of wick drains? For stone columns, do the recommendations include spacing and dimensions of columns, bearing capacity, settlement characteristics, and permeability (seismic applications)? For grouting, do the recommendations include the grouting method (permeation, compaction, etc.), material improvement criteria, settlement limitations, and quality control?
