  1. 1. GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEERS Citlaly S. Thursday, November 14, 13
  2. 2. What I is a Geotechnical Engineers? A geotechnical engineer studies different kinds of soil like bedrock,clay, sand, and top soil. If your wondering why they study this it's because before people build a house or a building they need to know if the ground is good for the house or for the building. Thursday, November 14, 13
  3. 3. How a model of an earthquake is same or different in real life Same Were making a model of how it happens. When we shake our model sometimes it falls and sometimes it doesn't fall and this is the same in real life because sometimes the building doesn't fall and sometimes it does. Thursday, November 14, 13 Different It was not a real earthquake because we did it with our hands. It's different from a real earthquake because we can't make a earthquake happen when we want it to. We don't make the building fall, it falls on its own.
  4. 4. Which layer of soil is good for earthquakes? • Top soil was not the best because we found out that earthquakes affect the top soil more than it does to the other soils and it affects the Top soil more because its on the top. When we shook our model with the top soil, the building fell over fast. • Sand was a little better than top soil because when we shook it, the building didn't fall as fast. • Clay was the best layer because the deeper the pier foundations go the more stable it gets and it was a while before the building fell. So clay is a good soil to use if your using these soils, pick clay. Thursday, November 14, 13
  5. 5. Advantage and Disadvantage of bedrock Advantage Disadvantage Structure is not damaged Long time to dig More stable in bedrock The bedrock helps the buildings from not falling over in a earthquakes Thursday, November 14, 13 A lot of money Hard to repair If the earthquake is too strong it can knock the building down
  6. 6. Here are some pictures of what we did!!! Thursday, November 14, 13
  7. 7. Top Soil Sand Clay In this model there is no bedrock Thursday, November 14, 13
  8. 8. We take a core sample to study the layers. You can see our topsoil easily, but you can't see the sand and the clay very well but they are there. Thursday, November 14, 13
