Abstract

A new arrangement of Venice Airport (Italy) was planned in order to enlarge the airside areas, by means of taxiway and runway extensions and de-icing-area. In this respect, a significant geotechnical and geophysical campaign was carried out during 2013-2014 with the aim to characterize the shallow Lagoon deposits of the wide airport zone. The combination of punctual geotechnical tests and linear geophysical methods underlined the complementarities of these two approaches to define a detailed areal model of Venice airport subsoil. In particular, these results confirm the comprehensive geotechnical studies carried out in the last three decades to characterize the Lagoon soils, highly heterogeneous and characterized by a predominant silt fraction, combined with sand and/or clay, forming a chaotic interbedding of various sediments.
