This one hour course discusses the procedures used for planning subsurface investigations and provides guidelines for site reconnaissance and sources of existing geological and historic data. Also presented are guidelines for determining subsurface information by visual examination during drilling and the basic operations for boring and sampling equipment. The student will gain an understanding of the types of subsurface investigation and requirements for the minimum number of borings and the depths and spacing for boring layouts. Basic engineering analysis techniques and typical recommendations will be discussed.
