gINT Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
The ODOT Office of Geotechnical Engineering made a decision to migrate to gINT software for the generation of Geotechnical Boring Logs in 2006. We had gINT perform a number of modifications to their standard template and perform numerous pieces of custom programming to tailor their software to meet the requirements of the ODOT Specifications for Geotechnical Exploration (SGE), specifically to classify soil and rock by the ODOT (modified AASHTO) method and to produce ODOT standard boring logs. Since fully implementing gINT in early 2008, we have recieved numerous questions and calls for support from consultants who have downloaded the ODOT gINT files, and started using them for ODOT projects. We decided to create this FAQ page to address responses to some of the more common questions we have received.NOTE: Before checking below for answers to specific issues you may be experiencing, make sure you have the most current copy of the ODOT glNT File Template and Library off of our web site, available at the following address:http://www.dot.state.oh.us/Divisions/ProdMgt/Geotechnical/Pages/gINTFiles.aspx.NOTE: gINT version 8.2.004 or greater is required to use these files. For those who wish to update their gINT version 8 software to version 8.2.004, the gINT version 8 update is available on the gINT Software website at the following address:http://www.gintsoftware.com/support_updates_v8.htmlSpecific Frequently Asked Questions:
Alternative split sieve size, rather than standard #10 split sieve, used for Hydrometer
Gradation for soil sample from Legacy boring log, with no raw Sieve or Hydrometer data
How do I enter roadway stationing in a gINT Project file?
How do I put gINT Boring Logs on Plan Sheets?
How do I update my customized gINT template by merging with the ODOT template?
Soil sample sieved through #200 sieve, with no Hydrometer run for classification
What are the ODOT gINT reports used for?
Why do some of the reports in the ODOT gINT library include USCS Classifications?
