Subsuface Investigation: Geotechnical Site Characterization

This module is the first in a series of twelve modules that constitute a comprehensive training course in geotechnical and foundation engineering. Sponsored by the National Highway Institute (NHI) of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), the training course is given at different locations in the U.S. The intended audience includes civil engineers and engineering geologists involved in the design and construction of transportation facilities. This manual is designed to present the latest methodologies in the planning, execution and interpretation of the various subsurface investigation methods, and the development of appropriate soil and rock parameters for engineering applications.
