    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Sets out minimum requirements for a geotechnical site investigation, as a component in the engineering design, construction, commissioning and operation of civil engineering and building works. Comprehensive appendices are provided dealing with preferred systems of geotechnical investigations and commonly considered laboratory tests. A typical project brief for a geotechnical site investigation is given and the commentary sets out guidelines on construction assessment, maintenance and evaluation of failures.
