GEOSTUD

ELABORATION OF GEOTECHNICAL STUDIES

GEOSTUD elaborates a diverse range of studies, projects and geotechnical works, which aim the execution and monitoring of the behavior in operation of the constructions, respectively:

  • Geotechnical studies for civil and industrial construction projects, roads, bridges, railways, airports, wind farms, waterways, tunnels, hydrotechnical constructions, stability of land masses etc.

  • Hydrogeological studies;

  • Geophysical studies; 

  • Geological studies;

  • Seismic studies;

  • Studies on the quality control of the works execution on the site.

RESEARCH – DEVELOPMENT STUDIES

The Department of Geotechnics and GEOSTUD laboratories carry out research and development studies in national and international projects in the fields of geotechnics, geophysics and geochemistry, respectively:

  • Theoretical and experimental researches for establishing correlations between the strength and deformation characteristics of the foundation ground at the infrastructure works;

  • Experimental studies to quantify the additional cohesion and stretching efforts induced in geosynthetic-reinforced soils;

  • Methodological guide on the control of the geosynthetic materials used for the rehabilitation and execution of public roads, highways, railways, airports, parking platforms etc.

  • Study of risk factors for railways, from the point of view of landslides, floods and earthquakes;

  • Study on the design and execution of works to protect the infrastructures of the bridges degraded by the scouring;

  • Development of hazard and risk maps for landslides etc. 

SOIL ACTIVITIES, LABORATORY TESTS AND ANALYSIS

  • Geotechnical drilling with sampling of disturbed and undisturbed samples class A; 

  • SPT executions;

  • Groundwater monitoring wells;

  • Other field investigations (PDG / DPH, PSDG / DPSH, CPT, CPTu, ERI, MASW, dilatometric tests, presiometric, piezometric, inclinometric, electrometric tests etc.);

  • Rock tests (all types of soils).
