Soil Testing

Quality of soil not only determines the bearing capacity but it ensures to determine the structure stabilization. Soil test is very important step of construction before it begins. Soil testing has multiple applications including geotechnical investigations, pavement design, and foundation analysis among others. Key tests include;

  • Field/Dry Density, Moisture Contents, Atterberg Limits
  • Linear Shrinkage, Specific gravity
  • Proctor Compaction Test, California Bearing Ratio
  • Direct Shear Test, Permeability (falling ), Consolation test
  • Sieve Analysis, Sieve Analysis with Hydrometer
  • Organic Content (physical)
