Site Investigation Using Resistivity Imaging

Author: Sahadat Hossain; Sadik Khan; Golam Kibria
Publisher: Milton : Chapman and Hall/CRC, 2018.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Subsurface investigation is the most important phase of any civil engineering construction or development activities. The geologic conditions can be extremely complex, variable, and subject to change with time; soil test borings and in-situ tests are employed to obtain subsoil information. Resistivity Imaging (RI) is a non-destructive, fast and cost-effective method of site investigation and soil characterization.  Read more...

Abstract:

Subsurface investigation is the most important phase of any civil engineering construction or development activities. The geologic conditions can be extremely complex, variable, and subject to change with time; soil test borings and in-situ tests are employed to obtain subsoil information. Resistivity Imaging (RI) is a non-destructive, fast and cost-effective method of site investigation and soil characterization. Site Investigation using Resistivity Imaging aims to summarize pertinent details of RI in site investigation for geotechnical and geo-environmental applications. It aims to bridge the gap that currently exists between the geotechnical/geo-environmental and geophysical engineering community. The geotechnical and geo-environmental engineers will be able to interpret the geophysical data and utilize the information for their design. It will be a comprehensive handbook for the application of RI in geotechnical and geo-environmental site investigations.
