    • CN 301 – GEOENVIROMENTAL ENGINEERINGINTRODUCTION
    • CN 301 – GEOENVIROMENTAL ENGINEERING INTRODUCTION To describe the advantages and disadvantages of site investigation tools and exploratory techniques.
    • CN 301 – GEOENVIROMENTAL ENGINEERINGSITE INVESTIGATION TOOLS
    • CN 301 – GEOENVIROMENTAL ENGINEERING EARTH AUGER ADVANTAGES DISADVANTAGES Can be manually  Can reach to 109- turned, handheld 110dB. (noisy) device or powered by an electric motor or internal combustion engine.

    • CN 301 – GEOENVIROMENTAL ENGINEERING CONCLUSIONPeralatan untuk penyiasatan tapak adalahpenting untuk mendapatkan data yangdiperlukan sebelum memulakan apa-apapembinaan. Peralatan masing-masingmempunyai kelemahan dan kelebihantersendiri. Kesilapan tidak semestinyadaripada peranti tetapi ia juga daripadakecuaian manusia.
