INTRODUCTION

This report covers the extent, procedures and the final results of the geophysical investigations conducted at the proposed power plant site in the Incirlik Air Force Base at Adana.

The main aim of the tests was the interpretation of the shallow soil structure and characteristic in the proposed site in terms of its physical parameters to aid in the vibration isolation design of the electric generator foundatitons.

For this purpose extensive surface refraction seismic tests were conducted. An initially planned vibration generator test to analyse the foundatiton response was later abandoned due to the unavailibility of proper testing facilities near by the site and further clasification of the scope and coverage of the investigations by Mr. Hüsamettin Güz, geotechnical consultant to Yalçin Teknik Consulting Firm .
