Abstract
Site characterization involves taking samples of soil, testing the samples, and evaluation of subsurface features, subsurface material types and their properties. The accuracy of characterization depends on ground features, subsoil condition and changes in geological aspects. In order to get the geotechnical properties of the soil stratum, it is necessary to carry out experiments both in the laboratory and field. The laboratory and field tests produce information especially about the type and strength of soils which are vital for the economic and safe design of infrastructure facilities and buildings. In the Multi-channel Analysis of Surface Waves (MASW) test, concepts of refraction analysis, time term method and tomographic inversion are used to calculate the seismic wave velocity with respect to depth for full of temple complex. The shear wave velocities are generated for 2D profiles layer and classified the soil layer are made using the results of average shear wave velocity up to top 30 m of the overburden (Vs)30. © IAEME Publication.
