    Abstract

    Requirements for design and construction vary widely depending on such conditions as size and purpose of the structure, kinds of construction materials, site conditions, and economic and safety considerations. Geologic site investigations and soil mechanics tests are geared to requirements for design and construction. Hence the procedures and intensity of investigation and the kinds of samples taken vary from site to site. This method discusses the information needed for the requirements for preliminary and detailed site investigations and sampling and also the minimum requirements for intensity of study and for sampling for soil mechanics tests.
