This present paper details the use of shear wave velocity profiles to characterize the sub-surface ground and assess its reppability. Seismic profiling tests were conducted using multi-channel analysis of surface waves, at two different locations in a limestone mine. At each location, the tests were conducted with minimum two perpendicular scan lines, with 24 geophones in each scan line. Manual hammering was used as a source of generation of waves. The ability of seismic profiling using multi-channel analysis of surface wave for ground characterization and rippability assessment of strata has been successfully elaborated in this paper.
