“Geotechnics opens up new paths.” The article begins with the definition of “geotech solutions,” which is not exactly what we would see today. No one can blame the author, because in fact geotechnics has really formed as a field of science and technology than in the last 50 years. The modern definition of geotechnics, found in dictionaries and encyclopedias, makes sense to show the closeness of this science (which we call geoscience or technoscience!).
With the field of construction and construction work. The difficulty of determining is that geotechnics is between the Earth sciences and the physical sciences. On the side of geosciences, if they do not cover, a priori, all fields of geology, especially those related to mines, oil and gas. Nevertheless, it is widely used to create the facilities necessary for their exploration and especially for their operation, and, on the other hand, requires solving problems associated with groundwater management, environmental issues related to soil and subsoil (s) contaminated, vibrations associated with construction sites …) and natural risks in geosciences (earthquakes, volcanoes, landslides, floods).
As for the physical sciences, the close ties of geotechnics with the mechanics and hydraulics of soils and rocks will be recalled below. This issue presents numerous recent or iconic examples (Millau Viaduct, transalpine base tunnels …), taken in various fields of construction, in order to show the richness and variety of geotechnical methods used today.
This word really only appears in French dictionaries from the seventies, that is, only 50 years ago. The invention of the word is probably older: it would have appeared in our Belgian and Swiss neighbors at the end of the 19th century, but remained at rest during the first half of the 20th century. This journal, which is always highly regarded in the field of soil mechanics, shows that this science with applied geology has formed the cradle of geotechnics. It is easy to see that the International Society of Soil Mechanics in 1997 changed its official name by introducing the word geotechnical.
Drillers often face several problems: problematic soils, slower-than-expected mining, damaged equipment. Our goal is to make life easier for drillers by providing them with high-quality tools and unrivaled customer service. With over 35 years of experience, Fordia has been manufacturing a wide range of high-quality solutions for geotechnical and environmental drilling customers. Our experts can offer innovative products that increase productivity and lower operating costs. In addition, our ISO 9001 certification and our commitment to quality ensure that our equipment will be the most efficient and will last much longer.
When you need help, there is only one company that provides geotechnical advice and technical support on the job site as soon as your productivity is in jeopardy. The company offers unprecedented technical services and on-site technical support to resume drilling operations no matter where, when and where.
The flexibility of geotechnical software solutions allows you to comply with local codes, standards, and building codes. This allows you to automatically transfer design data from architectural plans to decoration, and then to production. The main function of geotech solutions is to define and assign snap functions for each component in the control system. Thus, seamlessly integrating the design and production process and minimizing conflicts or incompatibilities.
Simple and intuitive design. Flexibility and ease of use, which allows you to design all types of custom frames, from the simplest to the most complex. Advanced walling methods and very flexible trusses. Roof or truss layout tools are designed to make the process simpler and easier. The user interface and printing functions are configured in several languages and characters.
Fast and accurate. An advanced and automated tool tool that allows you to consistently and in the right place to put the tool on the frame. Automatic sizing improves productivity, reduces errors, and reduces design time. Intelligent structural change tools that simplify and speed up manual changes as needed. Design validation features identify common design errors, reducing production and assembly problems.
