Geo-Explorer (Soil Exploring Vehicle)

Geo-Explorer

The Geo-Explorer is a compact, truck-mounted multifunctional soil exploring system with all the key equipment, such as a hydraulic drilling & penetrating rig and measuring & data processing equipment, needed for our advanced and unique soil exploration. This system can survey, quickly and economically, irregular distribution of the key strata for foundation design and work, such as steep bearing strata and weak strata.

Investigation Methods

  • MWD (Measurement While Drilling) Logging
  • Cone Penetration Testing
  • Soil Sampling

Features

  • The system is applicable to a wide variety of ground.
  • The execution time and cost of the system are less than 1/10 and 1/2, respectively, of a conventional boring technique in case of bearing stratum investigation.
  • The system can survey complex distribution of soil strata with low horizontal continuity at high accuracy that conventional boring techniques can not readily provide.
  • The system can immediately provide highly accurate investigation results on-site.
  • The single Geo-Exploreď˝’ vehicle equipped with the full-set soil exploring system on board is capable of conducting ground survey at any construction site in Japan.
  • Detailed soil properties can be examined in laboratory by utilizing the sampling capability of the Geo-Explorer.
