Seismic Geotechnical & Soil Dynamics

  • Project: Geotechnical & Seismic study of Alborz-Gate cultural complex (2008)
  • Client: Tehran Cultural Monuments Development Co., Municipality of Tehran
  • Location:  Northwest of Tehran, Iran
  • Services: The studies included drilling 10 boreholes, max of 40 m deep, using continuous coring & wash-boring methods, 5 plate load tests, 12 perssuremeter tests, 1 in situ direct shear test & 2 downhole tests.
  • Achievements:
  •  Seismology and fault locating studies using Georadar method  
  •   Determination of cohesion parameter of highly cemented coarse grained strata using in situ direct shear tests   
  •  Optimization of retaining walls and excavation supports in trenches of the bridge abutments       
  •  Optimization of foundation systems &  piling elimination
