Runway inspection

On airport operation and implementation of reconstruction and repairs of runways there appears a number of questions concerning the structure and state of constructional layers of runways, detects and heterogeneity in hard coating and lower coating.

Application of current geophysical technologies, notably newest instruments, respective methods and software of our developers and involvement of drilling data makes it possible to acquire reliable decision to the assigned tasks.



Engineering geological surveys for airports and runways

Determining thickness of structural layers of runways and taxi channels

Detection of nonsolid and watered zones

Study of reinforcement features of concrete pavement slabs

Study of engineering geological conditions of the zones liable to deformation:

determining occurence level of subsoil waters and upgrade water existence

mapping of bedrock foundation roof

locating zones of specific subsoil spread (peat, silt, salt subsoil etc.)

permafrost top tracing

detection of heavy icy rocks

examination of taliks, supercooled water brines with permafrost

examination of permafrost dynamics (seasonal freezing zones)

Mapping of underground utility lines

Study of dangerous engineering geological processes:


floating earth

karstic phenomena

Study of engineering geological environment of zones adjacent to airports

Checking runway pavement compliance with project documentation
