This is a subset of civil engineering, focusing on the “bones and muscles” of man-made structures. Structural engineers are also responsible for calculating the strength and stability of load-bearing structures to withstand earthquakes, wind, and other natural disasters.
Our ultimate goal is to make sure that these structures are able to defy the stresses and pressures of the environment while maintaining the safety of the occupants.
Geotechnical engineering is a branch of civil engineering which deals with the behavior of soils-water interactions. This knowledge is applied to planning and design of foundations of buildings, roads, retaining walls and other permanent structures on land and sea.
Corisav Inc is involved in field and laboratory investigations to determine the engineering properties of soils and other geo-materials; and their subsequent use in the analytical study to remedy the problem at hand.
