Geotechnical engineering and soil mechanics

Geotechnical engineering and soil mechanics

The findings and results gained from site investigations and laboratory tests are combined in an informative geological-geotechnical model. On this basis, the most suitable foundation methods are developed and the structure is optimised with regard to its interaction with the underlying ground.

This frequently requires the use of complex 2D and 3D software analysis programs.

Since the geological-geotechnical model is based on individual samples, the resulting uncertainties and/or risks, especially of complex large-scale projects, are then identified using probabilistic computational models.
