Large scale geological and geotechnical characterization for an industrial site
Preliminary studies for heavy infrastructures often include a significant amount of geotechnical recognition through boreholes. A refraction seismology / MASW campaign was conducted in this type of framework in Azerbaijan.
This campaign was held in a semi-desertic environment during two months. The team was comprised of our geophysicists, our topographers and local workers.
The acquired seismic velocities allowed the calculation and creation of sections for many common mechanical parameters. This resulted in positioning optimization for boreholes and geotechnical tests.
The use of parallel profiles and adequate data processing allowed map creation for geological boundary depth. Here, the depth of the fresh rock is shown.
