    Abstract

    This paper reveals the faster investigation of shear modulus of near surface soil with wireless networking system as a determination of soil properties in geotechnical investigations. Characterizing of surface soil behavior subjected to a specific loading condition is a primary goal in geotechnical engineering. The soil properties such as the shear modulus and material damping ratio is important to determine the response of soil characteristics. Spectral analysis techniques of Rayleigh-type surface waves can be utilized for characterizing the shallow subsurface through the multichannel analysis of surface wave method (MASW). In this paper, the new idea is established to embed wireless networking with characterizing near surface soil behavior using surface wave method. Wireless networking devices and microcontroller handles the data acquisition, signal processing, control, and communication for obtaining shear wave velocity and shear modulus of surface soil. The performance of newly developed surface wave method is estimated as faster and robust with arrangement of wireless networking system in soil investigations. The importance of our research is to establish the reliable, faster and costeffective system for near surface soil characterizations with wireless interfacing in geotechnical site investigations.
