Pile Buck, the international deep foundations and marine construction magazine, featured a guide to soil mechanics in the May/June 2019 issue. This excellent article discusses methodologies and equipment used in field exploration, in order to assess geological conditions.
Understanding specific ground conditions is a combination of both art and science. At DICA we work to provide information and resources to help customers understand the impact ground conditions have on the selection and use of outrigger pads, crane pads and cribbing. Some of these resources include our outrigger pad sizing graph, soil bearing capacity table and the DICA three step fitting process.
