TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONFOR GEOTECHNICAL INVESTIGATION1.0
This specification covers the technical requirements for a detailed“Geotechnical investigation and submission of a detailed
The detailed geotechnical investigation shall be carried out onshore to provide the designer with sufficientlyaccurate information both general and specific about the substrata profile and relevant soil and rock parameters at site on the basis of which the foundation for various structures and equipments of the power station can be designed rationally. Such structures wouldinclude main power house, Bypass Stack, boiler foundation, turbo-generator foundation, foundation for vibratory equipments, deep pits,reservoir, pipe supports and all other related structures of the power station etc. The above list is indicative and not exhaustive. The rangeof load intensities from the various structures are expected to be between 50 kN/sqm and 500 kN/sqm.
2.1 The work shall include mobilization of all necessary equipments, providing necessary engineering supervision and technical personnel,skilled and unskilled labours, arranging water for drilling etc asrequired to carry out the entire field as well as laboratoryinvestigation, analysis and interpretation of test data collected and preparation of a geotechnical report. The entire field as well aslaboratory investigation work shall be supervised by a graduate incivil engineering with at least 5 years of site experience in respectiveareas of geotechnical investigation work. A
geologist shall also bedeputed at site during investigation whenever rock drilling isundertaken. The scheduling of laboratory tests, analysis andinterpretation of test results, drafting of report and recommendationsshall be carried out by a post graduate in geotechnical engineeringwith at least 5 years of experience.
