Soil surveys, also known as geotechnical surveys, are one of the world’s most technical drilling specialties.This is used to ensure you drill in exactly the right position to meet precise standards. These results then enable the foundation dimensions to be set for different buildings and structures. The machines used are called sonic drills and the related drilling methods are known as the sonic method.
To carry out soil surveys, there are several methods available. The most common used are coring, pressure tests and penetration tests. Each of these methods differ either by the materials used, the equipment or the method employed. Sonic drilling, or soil surveys are carried out using rotary, rotary percussive or percussive drills.
To summarize, soil surveys are a complex and exciting world to explore!
This method of soil analyzing allows you to judge the soil characteristics and to take that to make foundations calculation. Crucial step of building process, work of art… To discover and apply the basic techniques of this method, come train yourself with Drill-i !
This training allows you to optimize the use of a penetrometer for the soil study. The penetrometer is a simple method in geotechnics but it has to meet the norms. To generate serious results to provide to your customers and to know how use it on its best, come train yourself with Drill-i !
This method is very used in soil study. Sometimes, it can be used in foundations as well because it doesn’t need drilling fluid or hammer system.
To become an expert with this method safely and correctly, come train yourself with Drill-i !
After the core drilling discovery training, you will be able to go further in details with the core drilling. It’s probably the most specific geotechnic method. Indeed, the core must be perfectly made to allow a right and correct analysis of the soil sample.
And it is available everywhere in France !
This soil study method allows to judge the ground features and to deduce foundation calculations. It is a crucial step of a building process. To apply the whole method right, come train yourself with Drill-i !
