DEVELOPMENTS IN SITE EXPLORATION TECHNIQUES FOR HIGHWAYS AND BRIDGES

SITE EXPLORATION FOR MAJOR HIGHWAYS INVOLVES DETAILED SOIL AND GEOLOGICAL STUDIES OVER EXTENSIVE AREAS OF TERRAIN. AN ACCOUNT IS GIVEN OF NEW DEVELOPMENTS IN THESE TECHNIQUES QUOTING EXAMPLES OF THEIR USE FOR HIGHWAYS AND BRIDGE WORKS. A VARIETY OF GEOPHYSICAL METHODS ARE QUOTED INCLUDING MAGNETOMETER, GRAVIMETER, SEISMIC AND RESISTIVITY SURVEYING WITH EXAMPLES OF THEIR USE AND AN ACCOUNT OF THEIR VALUE AND LIMITATIONS.
