Description: Contract Report
Abstract: The U.S. Anny Engineer Waterways Experiment Station (WES) contracted with Nash Computing Services (NCS) to research, design, and develop a Boring Log Database Manager (BLDM) as a database management and site characterization tool for use by geotechnical engineers. The PC-based BLDM program allows users to maintain a complete boring log database for multiple projects. The system can be used to create data files for use with the Intergraph INSITU system. In addition, BLDM has the capability of creating boring log plates in MicroStation design file format using Corps-standard soil and rock symbology. These design files may be modified and plotted on any Intergraph platform (i.e., PCs or UNIX workstations running MicroStation or VAX minicomputers running IGDS). BLDM combines the functionality of the Boring Log Database System and Boring Log Design File Builder, two separate geotechnical applications programs formerly available to Corps offices in Miscellaneous Paper ITL-91-2 and Instruction Report GL-92-2.
