Examples of Abutment in a sentence
Interpretation of Exploration Data The Left Abutment Excavation Slope Technical Memorandum (URS, 2012) discussed in detail the many types of data from surface and subsurface explorations that were assessed by the Design Team in the development of their geologic model of the Left Abutment.
No other landforms were observed during GEI’s review that would appear to be indicative of deep-seated landslides on the eastern, northeastern and southeastern flanks of Observation Hill (including the Left Abutment area).
Unanticipated ground conditions were revealed during excavation for the Left Abutment.
Further research indicated that two of the nine listed flights did not have stereo coverage of the Left Abutment area and two others were incorrectly cited.
Such man-made alterations coupled with the variable geology caused by movement on local faults presented challenges in interpretation of site landforms on the aerial photographs.The Design Team’s GDR (URS, 2008) and Geotechnical Interpretive Report (URS, 2008a) specifically address site landslides and devote extensive text to landslides on the Right Abutment.
