Since its stablishement, Orbis Terrarum has been distinguished for its work in geotechnical engineering, providing solutions to any engineering project.
For this purpose, we have a specific branch of technical specialists in the calculation and design of geotechnical solutions.
Our services support all phases of a project, from preliminary design through completion of the construction phase, including:
» Advising the client on the structural and economic viability of a project from the point of view of the terrain.
» Determining geotechnical characteristics of soil or rock and their behavior during and after construction through the interpretation of these data and recommendation of design parameters.
» Observing the behavior of the ground during construction and proposing new designs and recommendations adapted to the changes that may be needed.
Our services include:
» Subsurface exploration and testing (boreholes, trial pits, dynamic penetrometer, geophysics ...).
» In-situ tests.
» Sampling of soils and rocks.
» Laboratory testing of samples.
» Geological and hydrogeological studies.
» Reuse of soils and rocks.
» Geotechnical design:
• Earthworks, embankments, fills.
• Slope stability and optimization
• Retaining systems
• Foundations analysis and design
• Dynamic analysis of soil
• Ground reinforcement: ground anchors, micropiles, geogrids
• Soil treatment: injections, stabilization of soils
• Finite element modeling
» Geotechnical design for special works:
• Industrial plants.
• Transport: roads, railways.
• Quarries and mines.
