Geotechnical Engineering

geotechnical engineering

The experienced professionals at Lee A. Knuppel & Associates have valuable experience in all types of geotechnical engineering including soil testing, rock mechanics, foundation engineering and underground structures.




Our Work Includes:


  • Soil testing – From simple soil borings to complex tri-axial shear tests, we can supply the soil information you need. All soil reports are written by a licensed Geotechnical Engineer, and our on-staff Geologists can also provide useful information about subsurface water flow and rock formations.

  • Detailed landslide mapping

  • Crack monitoring in residential & commercial buildings

  • Remedial pier design

  • and more.

Soil and Rock Mechanics

Which is the analysis of soil and rock properties and behaviors so that they can be built with or upon.

Foundation Engineering

Uses knowledge of soil mechanics, geology, and Structural Engineering to design and construct foundations for structures.

Rock Engineering

Applies rock mechanics and structural engineering to design underground structures, such as tunnels and mines, and some surface structures, such as dam foundations which are carried into bedrock and stabilized rock slopes.
