WHAT CAN A GEOTECHNICAL INVESTIGATION COVER

‘Geotechnical investigation’ is a term that is applied to the performance assessment of in situ and
imported materials that are intended to form part of a project. This could include an
evaluation of: 􀂃
􀂃
topsoil stripping requirements

cuttings (e.g. to assess slope stability and rippability of rock) 

materials proposed for inclusion in embankment

strength/residual life of existing pavements 

subgrade for pavement design purposes

proposed pavement material (e.g. gravel) sources 

bridge foundations

the presence and extent of ground water 

water quality considerations with respect to compaction, surface drainage or potential
detriment to culvert structures.


Whilst some of these aspects can be addressed by knowledge of past performance in similar
geological and climatic conditions, these studies should be carefully considered for all projects. Geotechnical investigations should be initiated as soon as possible in the design phase,
particularly where substantial detail is required, so that project construction programs are not
adversely affected.
