3D GROUND MODELLING
3D ground modelling provides an essential tool for planning site investigations, siting & designing infrastructure, and assessing geotechnical and geohazard risk.
Geo-4D have experience in reviewing, integrating and interpreting various site characterisation datasets in order to produce 3D ground models that document seabed and subseabed conditions pertinent to the planning and engineering design of a site.
Ground models can be initiated at any point in the project, but generally benefit from commencing at the pre-development desk study phase. As site characterisation data are acquired, these are integrated into the model to refine predictions and reduce uncertainties. The ground model is refined until there is an acceptable understanding of site conditions and hazards to allow for design and installation to proceed.
