RE: Boring Logs

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]



That seems to be an “old school” thing…


When we get (particularly) pre-WWII drawings in the office, they often contain:



-                      Boring logs

-                      Pile blow counts

-                      Caisson reports

-                      sometimes even what we would consider “shop drawing” type info on

-                      connection details and rebar info…



Just like everything else, my guess is its related to liability and litigation…

Is it typical to include boring logs on foundation plans?


If it is not typical,  under what circumstances would you do so?  Would it be a function of soil type? structure type?  foundation type?
