Geotechnical Engineering

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
• Underpinning
• Finite element modeling

» Geotechnical design for special works:

• Tunnels.
• Dams.
• Industrial plants.
• Transport: roads, railways.
• Quarries and mines.
