Any project cannot be accomplished unless the project site has been explored and tested completely. Any site that involves the construction of bore wells, pools, caves, tunnels and oil rig platforms may need to be tested for durable soil conditions.
Geophysics testing is highly effective in studying the condition of the strata, soil and foundation. The testing system will prove helpful in identifying the profile of the soil and the bedrock. Experts will use different geophone and hydrophone devices and equipment during the testing process.
- The testing will help identify if the soil and strata below are fit for construction
- It also helps in studying the pattern of the underground flowing water bodies
- Equipment used for the testing purpose will help in determining if the sol deposit is ideal or not
In case there are buried pipes and voids, then the testing will help in revealing it. If the foundation already exists, then the testing will prove helpful in identifying its depts. There are many advantages of carrying out geophysical testing on the land.
- Non-invasive testing
One great advantage of using geophysical testing systems and equipment is that they are non-invasive types. So the team does not have to dig the earth and the soil to study its strata conditions. The testing can be carried out from the top surface using advanced technological devices.
This is also obvious that the testing system does not involve traditional drilling methods to conduct the tests. This also eliminates the need for gravel deposits during the testing process. The land does not get contaminated as well because of the excavated soil.
- Large area coverage
If you have to inspect the condition of the soil beneath the soil surface then you have to carry out digging bores on multiple locations. The samples have to be collected and this process is time-consuming. But this is not the case when using the geophysical testing system.
The testing system has proved that it is much more effective and can be used in the larger coverage area. This also speeds up the testing process. The expert team can often test a wider area within a short period using advanced tools and equipment. This makes it more suitable for use in bigger projects.
- Accuracy levels
If you are using geophysical testing equipment then it is possible to examine a very small sample of the soil particle. The results and analysis are highly accurate. So a very precise report of the soil strata can be submitted by the professional team.
This also makes the testing system more flexible depending on the type of project you are working on. Theseismic cable can be used to monitor a small percentage of vibrations on the surface
The testing system will also prove more effective in collecting all relevant data related to the subsurface soil. The method is also less expensive it involves less time and labor. You may not have to engage the entire team in carrying out the testing. Simple monitoring devices can be installed in the location. The data can be collected and analyzed by the expert team.
