Geognostic investigations

The purpose of geognostic investigations lead to the understanding of subsoil behaviour, using direct and invasive techniques, such as digging and boreholes.

More in detail, the perforations allow to:

  • reconstruction of stratigraphic and lithological profile through the observation of extracted samples
  • obtain samples to determine the physical and mechanical properties
  • detect the presence of groundwater and evaluate the aquifer characteristics
  • conduct in situ tests useful to define the geotechnical properties of soil and rock
