Deep Soil Test Borings to Determine Shear Wave Velocities Across South Carolina

The overall goal of this research is to perform extensive site investigation and provide the South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) with a set of key parameters that can be used to conduct site-specific site response analysis (SSRAs) at two sites in the South Carolina Coastal Plain. Geotechnical site characterization and soil dynamic properties of the proposed sites will provide SCDOT engineers and contractors with more reliable resources that can be used for the design of transportation infrastructure projects. Designs based on site-specific data will reduce uncertainties, improve safety, and potentially reduce construction costs.
