Use of 3D Seismic Waveform Tomography with SPT Source for Geotechnical Site Characterization

The objective of this project is to develop a robust 3D SPT-seismic FWI algorithm and GUI module for geotechnical site characterization. The algorithm developed through this project will provide 3D high-resolution images of substructures to any SPT depths (down to 150’). The GUI module will be transferred to FDOT for future site investigations for many purposes, including identifying top of rock/bearing layer and problematic soils, detecting sinkholes/voids, and assessing varying site conditions
