There are 167.5 million crossings every day on 43,578 US bridges considered structurally deficient and in poor condition – and a similar story has played out in other nations over the past decade. Addressing this global historic infrastructure gap has been a hot topic in the past 12 months, but it is by no means going to be simple.
Here at Seequent we are all about a better understanding of the earth, and believe that better ground engineering can mean better transportation infrastructure for all. Now we are part of Bentley Systems, together our solutions above and below ground bridge the gaps between geoscience, ground engineering, and infrastructure design and construction.
Given the challenges geotechnical engineers face in terms of limited availability of subsurface data, and the time and money spent on site investigations, it makes sense to take care of your data every step of the way. It’s also vital to get the most leverage from it through more productive engineering geology interpretation, and to share your understanding with 3D visualisations that bring the subsurface uncertainties and engineering challenges to life for both technical and non-technical stakeholders.
This eBook shares perceptive viewpoints from a team of experts around Seequent and Bentley, including their insights, tips and inspiration to change things up in your approach to ground engineering for transportation.
