Soil studies

In Geo Costa Rica we work with several methods of field tests for the preparation of soil studies according to the requirements of our customers, from the DPL (Dinamic Probing Light), SPT (Standard Penetration Test), geophysical methods, even exploratory drilling with core recovery.
The field tests are fundamental in the field of geotechnics or soil mechanics since they give us information on the mechanical, hydraulic and engineering properties of the subsoil and the geological environment, offering indispensable data for the design of foundations for structures and civil works as well to determine the environmental impact and prevent geological risks.

Standard Penetration Test
(SPT)

SPT

It allows to determine the most important geotechnical parameters for the characterization of soils

Important for the calculation of the load capacity of surface foundations

Dinamic Probing Light
(DPL)

DPL

Allows jobs in hard-to-reach places

Important for the calculation of the load capacity of surface foundations

Geophysical Methods

Geophysical Methods

Allows to infer the geological structure of the subsoil

It allows to determine the discontinuity between the different layers of the subsoil

Exploratory drilling with core recovery

Exploratory drilling with core recovery

Perforation that allows to recover samples from the subsoil

Important to determine the stratigraphy of the subsoil

All these techniques allow us to analyze in depth the subsoil and its characteristics allowing to give correct recommendations for the design of superficial foundations (footings and slabs), semi-deep foundations (slabs and caissons) and deep foundations (piles), as well as to analyze the geological mean and the possible impact of a certain activity on aquifers or natural phenomena such as landslides, subsidence of earth, mud flows and rockfall.
