An electrical resistivity investigation was carried out within the vicinity of some failed building structures at Amafor Ihuokpala through Agbani, Enugu, Southeastern Nigeria. The aim of the survey was to determine the causes of the failure of the structures. Resistivity data were acquired by using PASI (16GL) digital earth resistivity meter. Interpretation of the vertical electrical sounding results indicates the occurrence of relatively thin topsoil (<2 m) composed of sandy-clay which is… CONTINUE READING
