Site Investigation

RockSoil Sampling is one of the most important scope in Site Investigation work. It provides an in-depth understanding on type of the material and its characteristic behavior in substrata. Soil Samples can be obtained using various techniques depending on soil condition and can be classified into Disturbed (D) or Undisturbed (UD) samples.

Soil Sampling Guidelines

Soil sampling for whole-field management The goal of soil sampling for whole-field management is to get a sample representative of the typical soil in the field. To do this, subsamples are distributed across large areas to ensure the entire field is represented. To achieve this, collect composite samples in a zig-zag pattern (Fig. 3).
