Geo-Design undertook an independent design check of a high-level viaduct structure across steep mountainous terrain in a seismically active region.
The foundations comprised unusually large diameter caisson structures, founded on a foliated gneiss – foliation within the gneiss was locally adverse.
The design check involved a detailed appraisal of all available geotechnical data (including outcrop) and an assessment of overall and local slope stability – evaluated in relation to the bearing capacity potential for the foundations.
