Geotechnical Properties Of Qatar Rocks

Engineering Characteristics of Rocks in Qatar

In Qatar, many subsurface construction operations take place in rocks. However, the lack of studies and research that analyze the subsurface rock components from a geotechnical engineering perspective has created unexpected construction conditions. Most of similar studies handled concerns about properties related to oil and gas fields.
