All important civil engineering projects like dams, reservoirs, slopes, tunnels, roads, bridges and buildings are constructed on rocks or on soils. It is therefore essential that the engineer should have the fullest knowledge of possible strata or soil through which works of construction are to be carried out or on which these have to rest. When the geological characters of the site or of alignment are not properly investigated or interpreted, the structures might involve considerably higher costs. Not only that, their stability might be in question. Many a dam disasters, foundation failures in buildings, collapse of bridges and tunnels were, on subsequent study, found to be closely related to ignorance of geological conditions that existed in and around these structures.
