Geotechnical Engineering

Our specialized team of professionals here at EARTHRES have many years of experience in geotechnical engineering. Our experience in geotechnical engineering includes geological mapping, site investigation, slope stability assessment, sinkhole assessment/remediation, highwall evaluations, landfill liner and cap system stability evaluations, and recommendations for facility siting and mitigation of slope failures. Our engineers are trained in slope analysis software programs that simulate slope conditions and evaluate static and seismic conditions during development and final construction stages.

Features and Benefits

  • Cost-Benefit Analysis
  • Safe Slope Design

geotechnical-engineeringUsing principles of soil and rock mechanics, our team of experienced geotechnical engineers and geologists evaluate subsurface conditions and materials in order to evaluate existing conditions associated with soil, rock and the potential influence of groundwater. This information is used to determine and assess potential risks before any client or our team begins site design and development, performs appropriate analyses such as slope stability, and provides recommendations relevant to design, construction, and ongoing operations.

To monitor geologic and geotechnical site characteristics, EARTHRES routinely performs geophysical surveys. Our methods include:

  • Seismic
  • Electrical Resistivity
  • Electromagnetic Induction
  • Ground-Penetrating Radar
  • Magnetometry
  • Gravity
  • Borehole Geophysical Surveys
