February 20, 2013: Announcing the launch of "GeoTech Tools" for Highway Construction!

A large toolbox for the engineering and construction of earthworks and ground improvement is now available in a readily accessible web-based system. A catalog with detailed information on 46 geoconstruction and ground improvement techniques is contained in this system. Users will find that the value of the system is that it has collected, synthesized, integrated, and organized a vast amount of critically important information on these geotechnologies. Eight engineering tools are available for each geotechnology; and include guidance for design, QC/QA methods, specifications, and cost estimating. This system can be accessed at Geotech Tools and is free to use. Registration is required to access the system. Continuous updates to the system based on technology developments and research, user comments, and submitted case histories will be made. Comments and feedback on any aspect of the system are invited.
