ENGINEERING EXPECTATIONS FROM TERRAIN EVALUATION

ANY SYSTEM OF TERRAIN EVALUATION FOR ENGINEERING IS INTENDED TO BE BASIS FOR THE STORAGE AND RETRIEVAL AND COMMUNICATION OF INFORMATION. THE COMPLETE FEEDBACK CYCLE OF EVALUATION AND APPLICATION IN TERRAIN EVALUATION CAN BE CONSIDERED TO WORK ONLY IN RELATION TO A SPECIFIC ASPECT OF ENGINEERING. CONSEQUENTLY, THE NEED FOR MANY PARTICULAR BRANCHES OF TERRAIN ENGINEERING IS APPARENT, EACH BRANCH BEING RELATED TO A SPECIFIC ENGINEERING EXPECTATION. THEREFORE, ENGINEERING EXPECTATIONS FROM TERRAIN EVALUATION MAY BE OF SUCH VARIETY AS TO DEFY ANY DETAILED ATTEMPT AT DESCRIPTION AND CLASSIFICATION. CATEGORIES ARE DELINEATED IN A TABLE WHICH MAY SERVE TO INDICATE AN AWARENESS OF THE BROAD NATURE OF THE ENGINEERING EXPECTATIONS FROM A TERRAIN EVALUATION. IT MAY BE SEEN THAT A FEASIBILITY STUDY FOR ROAD DEVELOPMENT IN AN UNDERDEVELOPED REGION WOULD INVOLVE THE ENGINEERING EXPECTATIONS OF THE RESULTS OF ALL EARTH SCIENCE STUDIES, TOGETHER WITH RECORDED ENGINEERING EXPERIENCE IN THE AREA.
