GEOTECH INVESTIGATIONS:

While the foundation may be the most critical aspect of a tower, it is only as strong as the earth around it can support. Therefore, no tower foundation can be truly analyzed without the accompanying geotechnical investigation. Structural Components offers packaged deals on combined foundation mappings and geotechnical investigations. SC may complete the investigation with in-house resources, and can also manage licensed drilling operations.

Geotechnical investigations include but are not limited to the following:

  • Boring Log
  • Description of soil layers encountered
  • Depth to groundwater
  • Cohesion values of individual soil layers
  • Friction values of individual soil layers
  • Unit weight of each soil layer
  • Coefficient of friction of individual soil layers
  • Allowable slide friction resistance of individual soil layers
  • Allowable vertical bearing pressure of individual soil layers
  • Allowable bearing pressure of individual soil layers
  • Allowable lateral pressure of individual soil layers
