The power of the wave

Geophysical surface testing techniques are a non-intrusive way to provide a picture of what lies underground.

These techniques complement and enhance drilling data to provide more accurate and reliable geotechnical information.

Surface Testing Applications:

  • Liquefaction Screening
  • Soil Site Class assessment
  • Site specific spectral response for large and special structures
  • Ground consistency
  • Elastic Moduli
  • Geotechnical Parameters- Unconfined Compressive Strength, Rippability, Blastability
  • Depth to 'hard'

Surface Testing Techniques:

  • MASW and Microtremor (Vs)
  • Refraction (Vp)
  • Seismic Cone Penetration Testing (SCPT)
  • Downhole Seismic
  • Crosshole Seismic
