Description

Module 2 provides guidance on appropriate investigations to assess the ground conditions to support the seismic design of new structures.

Developed jointly by MBIE and the New Zealand Geotechnical Society, the module is part of the Earthquake Geotechnical Engineering Practice series and relates specifically to earthquake site investigation.

Scope

This document has three primary objectives:

1. the promotion of good practices for the collection of consistent, high quality and reliable factual geotechnical data for the purposes of geotechnical earthquake engineering (primarily for buildings).

2. the provision of guidance on an appropriate minimum scope and methodology for undertaking such investigations.

3. the promotion of investigation techniques and methodologies which are consistent and compatible with the assessment and analysis methodologies which are referenced in modules 3 and 4.
