Abstract. As part of a fundamental characterization of a subsurface layer in South Korea, the weathering degree and shear wave velocity (V S) were evaluated in a decomposed granite in Hongseong, using X-ray fluorescence analyses and site investigations, including borehole drilling with standard penetration test (SPT) and in situ seismic tests.The subsurface layer was composed of a weathered

2019-10-9 · Granite ( /rænt/) is a common type of felsic intrusive igneous rock that is granular and phaneritic in texture. Granites can be predominantly white, pink, or gray in color, depending on their mineralogy. The word "granite" comes from the Latin granum, a grain, in reference to the coarse-grained structure of such a holocrystalline rock ...
