WP 2: Field geotechnical and engineering geological study
This WP involves site selection as well as geotechnical and engineering geological field work. Existing geotechnical information relevant to the selected sites was collected from the literature and other available sources (e.g. geotechnical companies, administrative authorities). The geotechnical investigation and drilling of boreholes took place at the selected sites including engineering-geological mapping and information about neotectonic activity of the area. Finally, selected representative core samples were characterized for the evaluation of the site effects.
