Geotechnical Checklist: GTR Review Checklist for Material Sites Mobile App
The Geotechnical Checklist: GTR Review Checklist for Material Sites mobile app allows you to replace your paper checklist with a 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. Have soil samples representative of all materials encountered during pit investigation been submitted and tested? If the lab quality test results indicate that specification material cannot be obtained from the pit materials as they exist naturally, has the source been rejected or are detailed recommendations provided for processing or controlling production so as to ensure a satisfactory product? Where high moisture content clay-silt soils must be used, are recommendations provided on the need for aeration to allow the materials to dry out sufficiently to meet compaction requirements? Do the proven material site quantities satisfy the estimated project quantity needs?
