  • Task:
    As a geotechnical engineer you will develop a professional geotechnical report for your client ‘Eco Now Homes’.
    To be successful:
    You will:
    • produce a professional project final report for a client
    • using the supplied borehole data to evaluate the soil to classify the given site
    • based on the site classification, site preparation works is to be recommended as per Australian standards AS 2870-2011
    • identify the best location of the building within the given site

    Note:
    • Minimum setback is 4m and 1m for the front and back parts respectively of the proposed residential building.
    • For cohesive soil, maximum slope angle = 30° for soil fill and maximum slope angle = 45° for soil cut are used. For cohesionless soil, maximum slope angle = 30° is used.
    • If your building length is larger than the site length by considering the space for cut and fill, you can adopt maximum length when cut and fill are applied. • Foundation designed is not required and location is our focus.
    • If give information is not sufficient, rational assumptions can be made, particularly for the soil profiles between 2 borelogs.
    Borehole log:

  • images-19-1-24
    • Assume the supplied borelog starts from the ground surface.
    • If your supplied borelog is one, assume its profile is parallel to the ground surface.,
    • If the supplied borelogs are two, assume they divide the land into 3 parts uniformly. The orders can be seen below.
    • If the supplied borelogs are three, assume they divide the land into 3 parts uniformly. The orders can be seen below
    Three borelogs
