This session will include a short presentation on the components of a geotechnical report and how to review the geotechnical items in project plans/specifications for field applications. This presentation will provide commentary on the best practices of interpreting geotechnical report recommendations for the purposes of performing Construction Materials Inspection and Testing. Scenarios on what can go wrong if geotechnical reports are misinterpreted or not properly included in the project will be discussed.
1. Why is a Geotechnical Engineering Report required?
2. Best practices for deciphering a Geotechnical Engineering Report?
3. A brief overview of the components of a typical report.
