Geotechnical Lab Testing Engineering Services

  1. Soil classification
    • Mechanical grain size analyses (sieves)
    • Hydrometer testing
    • Atterberg limits

  2. Consolidation testing
    • 1D consolidation using odoemeter (dead weight) equipment (3 units)
    • 1D consolidation using pneumatic consolidometer (3 units)
    • 3D isotropic consolidation using triaxial cell under constant rate of strain (1 unit)

  3. Triaxial testing
    • 50 mm and 70 mm diameter cohesive samples can be tested under CD or UU conditions, with either volumetric change or pore water pressure measurement
    • Unconfined compressive strength of cohesive samples
    • Hollow torsional cylinder tests on reconstituted cohesionless samples for determination of CSSM parameters

  4. Hydraulic conductivity
    • Constant head permeameter for cohesionless samples
    • Flexible wall permeameter for clay samples

  5. Rock core testing
    • Point Load testing
    • Unconfined compressive strength
