Geotech Lesson!

The Atterberg limits are a basic measure of the critical water contents of a fine-grained soil: its shrinkage limit, plastic limit, and liquid limit. These tests are commonly used in the design stage to ensure that the soil has enough shear strength and that it does not change too much in volume as it expands and shrinks with different moisture contents.

Our team was excited to get out of the office for a couple of days and spend some time in Florida! Central Geotech worked with Awen Solutions Group to perform a geotechnical investigation in the Sarasota National Cemetery for the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. From challenging subsurface soils in Alaska to drilling in the sand in sunny Florida, we are equipped to perform geotechnical investigations anywhere in the United States.

Unique to most other engineering disciplines, geotechs are not just needed to create the design of the project. Onsite "Special Inspections" are normally required by the local permitting authority, and tied to the Building Inspector's requirements for the General Contractor.

Items that are commonly required may include compaction testing, asphalt testing, Proctor laboratory tests, evaluations of subgrade soils, and others.

Challenging Subsurface Conditions︱Central Geotechnical Services

There are many challenging subsurface geotechnical conditions that require civil engineers and architects to rethink their plans for construction. But what does subsurface mean, and what are some common complications that get in the way of building?

Challenging subsurface geotechnical conditions can range from weak soils, high water table, liquefaction, or swamp, making construction tough
