The analysis of the make-up of soil and rock, or “geotechnics”, is useful – and even essential – whenever you build or modify structures.Read more
We provide some tips on drilling when the temperature drops: knowing your terrain, preparing for a long day out in the field, using adequate safety gear, working safely, knowing how to gauge and use your equipment, using the right vehicles, using performance drilling equipment, and more!
Drilling consists of digging holes (called “wells” when you’re prospecting) in the ground for different uses.
In our last blog article, part 1 of this topic, we introduced you to geotechnical engineering’s history, beginnings and pioneers. Now that we have laid the foundations, let’s move into the evolution of this crucial discipline. What is foundation engineering?
Throughout history, many catastrophic events could have been avoided if geotechnical engineering had been a reality at the time. Humans built structures such as buildings, bridges and dams, and dug tunnels and holes without the scientific knowledge to back their plans and thus ensure the stability and safety of their structures.
Today GtechDrill is recognized for its technical expertise and its star drill, the GT8.
Geotechnical drilling is a speciality with its very own techniques and particularities. Drillers and other workers in the geotechnical field work with very specialized, high-precision machinery. Their practice requires thoroughness, accuracy, performance and reliability, so it is imperative to use equipment that is appropriate for the type of drilling and type of soil involved.
Health and safety have changed enormously in recent years, increasing worker safety.
The field of geotechnics has made strong advances, but it’s also true that it has existed since the dawn of time.
International environmental standards are becoming stricter and stricter, and they pose not one but two serious challenges for manufacturers of engines, particular diesel engines.
