STANDARD SCOPE OF TESTING OFFERED

Geotechnical testing commonly undertaken in-house includes:

  • Classification
    • Moisture content
    • Atterberg Limit
    • Particle size distribution
    • Bulk density
    • Particle density
  • Geochemical
    • pH and water soluble sulfate content
    • Chloride content
  • Compaction
    • Dry density / moisture content value relationship
    • Moisture condition value (MCV)
    • California bearing ratio
  • Compressibility
    • Oedometer consolidation
  • Permeability
  • Strength testing:
    • Total Stress
    • Effective Stress
