Geotechnical Investigation & Engineering

What are geotechnical investigations? Good soil information is precious. It can lead to significant savings and firm foundations designs because the parameter designs are well defined. If the information is comprehensive, the structure built will be more economical, and it will be stronger. The objective of geotechnical investigations is to build a good building at […]

Soil Thermal Resistivity Testing for rail infrastructure

Soil thermal resistivity testing is essential for electrical rail infrastructure. It is acknowledged that electrical cables produce heat. This heat is a by-product of the electrons in the metal. When the particles move there is friction. Friction causes heat and this is why the cable heats. In high load areas such as Rail infrastructure most […]

Soil Thermal Resistivity Testing and Saving for Clients

Soil thermal resistivity testing or soil thermal conductivity testing is a relatively new field and as such little is known about how some soils can react and the implications it may have on infrastructure. It is obvious that soil thermal resistivity testing can have significant savings in not only the cable sizing but also the amperage or […]

Soil thermal conductivity

Knowing this about soil can help save your underground power line problems As you would all agree that soil thermal conductivity is a relatively new field. We have guides of cause but in relative terms to other sciences it is in its infancy. The more I read what is written the longer and more confusing […]
