Seismic refraction investigations carried out in Michigan have shown that the application of this type of geophysics can be an invaluable aid in certain engineering problems. The technique is outlined briefly with a simple two layer case illustrated.Field procedures under various conditions are considered in order to emphasize the versatility and advantages of refraction work. Speed and the economics of operation are also developed with special reference to actual jobs covering specific problems.
