Some Notes on the Geotechnical Investigation Process

This paper documents some of the lessons learned by the author in the geotechnical investigation process. The author offers his knowledge over the years about which investigative processes work best for different problems and sites. However, many of today’s Engineers & Geologists never were exposed to the numerous learning experiences (failures) of the early practitioners. Many mistakes have been repeated. Some are site and soil specific, some are process specific, and many are major errors. It is the author’s goal to provide thorough notes that will help other in the geotechnical investigation process from his years of experience.
