Seismic prospecting – MASW

MASW (Multi-Channel Analysis of Surface Waves) – Method allows profiling of shear wave velocity Vs, which is a direct indicator of soil resistance (stiffness) and is commonly used to obtain the bearing capacity.

MASWMASW method is particularly useful where the signal / noise ratio is unfavorable investigations using conventional seismic (reflection and refraction), in urban areas with heavy traffic.


MASW seismic prospecting method allows to determine, besides velocity profile, certain geotechnical parameters such as Young’s modulus, shear modulus, endometrial module, compression module, etc.
