Abstract

Geotechnical engineering, similar to other branches of engineering, must adapt and progress in accordance with contemporary technological advancements. The present investigation endeavors to examine the spatial correlations between soil characteristics, such as Undrained Shear Strength (Su) and Bearing Capacity of shallow footing (qu), across various regions within the city of Falluja. This city experienced significant infrastructure devastation subsequent to the year 2017, necessitating the need to keep up with the rapid development occurring in this locality. Consequently, it is imperative to devise the most expeditious means of acquiring preliminary data at the most cost-effective rate and within the shortest timeframe. For this study, The NOVOSPT was used to test and evaluate the (SPT) standard penetration test readings to obtain the values of soil properties for the research area using the 149 test holes in the study area. These values were used to generate a digital geotechnical map of the urban area utilizing the Geographic Information System (GIS). This map accurately depicts the spatial distribution of geotechnical characteristics that can be promptly accessed whenever required, thereby resulting in time and cost savings for engineers.
