Geotechnical Checklist: PS&E Review Checklist General Mobile App
The Geotechnical Checklist: PS&E Review Checklist General mobile app allows you to replace your paper checklist with an Android, iPhone, tablet or Windows desktop 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. Has the appropriate geotechnical engineer reviewed the PS&E to ensure that the design and construction recommendations have been incorporated as intended and that the subsurface information has bee presented correctly? This is absolutely necessary. Has the use of “subjective” subsurface terminology (such as relatively soft rock or gravel with occasional boulders) been avoided? Are plan details and special provisions provided for special drainage details, such as lined surface ditches, drainage blanket under sidehill fill, interceptor trench drains, etc.?
