Geotechnical Engineering
Geotechnical Engineering, a specialized branch of civil engineering dealing with the properties and science of soil, rock and water, is a multi-disciplinary field that blends scientific analyses with the experience of the engineer to find practical solutions to problems encountered furing planning, design and construction phases of the project.
ACCURA provides quality professional engineering and testing services for the purpose of supporting consulting engineering firms, architects, contractors, developers, and government agencies. We have built a solid reputation throughout the southeast for providing competent support services to design and construction professionals involved in various projects.
Our professional staff has numerous years of combined experience in conducting geotechnical engineering services. Some of those services include:
- Geotechnical and Geological Studies
- Subsurface Explorations
- Foundation Design and Recommendations
- Slope Stability Analysis
- Dewatering Recommendation and Design
- Earth Retaining Systems Design
- Specification Development
- Site Specific Seismic Studies
- Foundation Inspection
- Soil Stabilization Design
- Borrow Site Evaluation
- Instumentation
- CAD/GIS Services
Pavement Engineering combines the knowledge of soil (subgrade) in combination with mechanistic properties of engineered materials such as aggregates, asphalt concrete and Portalnd cement concrete layered systems. Pavement design and material characterization has gone through evolutionary changes in the last decade. Our professionals have been an integral part of the Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP) and the Federal Highway Administration's (FHWA) Long Term Pavement Performance (LTPP) study. The work provided by LTPP has led to a new mechanistic-empirical (M-E) thickness design process for pavement structures.
ACCURA provides quality professional engineering services for the purpose of site characterization and design of new pavement facilities and evaluation, analyses and preparation of maintenance, rehabilitation or reconstruction strategies for existing pavement facilities.
Our professional staff has several years of combined experience in conducting pavement-engineering services. Some of those services include:
- Site Characterization and Design Recommendations
