Chapter 16. Geotechnical reports

Chapter 16 introduces the two key geotechnical reports that are defined in Eurocode 7: the Ground Investigation Report (GIR) and the Geotechnical Design Report (GDR). Also in this chapter is a discussion of other reports that contribute to the GIR, such as drilling and sampling records, field investigation reports, and laboratory test reports. The chapter also includes a comparison with existing practice.
