GEOLOGICAL AND GEOTECHNICAL ROAD STUDY - NATIONAL ROAD 75 BETWEEN VIF AND THE COL DE LA CROIX - HAUTE (ISERE)

ETUDE GEOLOGIQUE ET GEOTECHNIQUE ROUTIERE-LA ROUTE NATIONALE 75 ENTRE VIF ET LE COL DE LA CROIX-HAUTE ISERE

The author presents a detailed geological and geotechnical study of the alignment of the RN 75 and its surroundings. He intends to show the usefulness of a complete geological examination, before any civil engineering structure is being built. The paper includes six sections:- (1) geographical background, including general regional characteristics, morphology, climate and urban development; (2) geological background, relating to lithology and structure of the Quaternary terrain and rock bed, as well as hydrogeology; (3) geotechnical study of each formation, by means of laboratory tests and site observations; (4) geophysical methods; (5) a review of the various categories of disorders recorded and their geological, hydrogeological and geotechnical context, as well as a study of documents have assisted the determination of the causes and proposals for the best adapted solutions; (6) the establishment of a geotechnical map in the light of data obtained in order to facilitate the study of future projects and the choice of available alignments. /TRRL/
