GEOPHYSICAL METHODS IN HIGHWAY ENGINEERING

PRECISE INFORMATION REGARDING CERTAIN ENGINEERING PROPERTIES OF SOIL AND ROCK ARE NECESSARY TO THE DESIGN PHASE OF HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION. THIS INFORMATION INCLUDES' /1/ THE AMOUNT OF SOIL AND ROCK TO BE REMOVED ALONG EACH PORPOSED CUT, /2/ THE RELATIVE EASE OF REMOVAL, AND /3/ DEFINITION OF THE ENGINEERING PROPERTIES OF THE BEDS WHICH WILL SERVE AS THE IMMEDIATE UNDERLAYERS OF THE HIGHWAY. ANSWERS TO THESE PROBLEMS CAN BE PROVIDED BY GEOPHYSICAL TECHNIQUES. THIS PAPER SURVEYS THE CURRENT STATE OF KNOWLEDGE OF GEOPHYSICAL TECHNIQUES AND EMPHASIZES SOME OF THE PROBLEMS THAT MAY BE ENCOUNTERED.
