Abstract: GEOSITE is a knowledge-based expert system that provides guidance, from geotechnical engineering experts, for the selection of equipment and methods for a subsurface investigation at an individual exploration site for a dredging project. The GEOSITE program recommends the following: (a) sediment sampling methods, (b) in situ strength testing methods, (c) methods for accessing the sampling/testing depth, (d) suitable field work platforms, and (e) material identification tests. GEOSITE is primarily intended to be used by persons familiar with basic geotechnical site investigation and testing methods, such as U.S. Army Corps of Engineers civil engineers or engineering geologists. GEOSITE may also be useful to dredging contractors, either for internal use or for use by a private geotechnical firm in their employ.
