• FINAL GEOTECHNICAL INVESTIGATION SANITARY SEWER ...

    Sampling Methods Soil samples were obtained continuously to the termination depth of the borings. Cohesive soil samples were obtained with a threeinch thinwalled (Shelby) tube sampler in general accordance with ASTM D1587 standard. Each sample was removed from the sampler in the field, carefully examined, and then classified.

  • Drilling and Sampling of Soil and Rock

    used on any rock coring job, but typically, it is used on projects where bore holes are greater than 25 m deep and rapid removal of the core from the hole has a greater effect on cost. Wireline drilling is also an effective method for both rock and soil exploration though cobbles or boulders, which tend to shift and block off the bore hole.
