IN SITU TESTING

in-situ

Several in situ tests can be used to measure soil properties as they exist in place, without the need to extract soil samples from the ground and transport them to a laboratory for testing. There are many cases where this is preferable to collecting samples to be tested later in the laboratory, and in some instances, relative density for loose sands for example, may be the only economical way to determine certain soil properties. The in-situ tests that our laboratory can provide include:

  • Static plate load test
  • Dynamic plate load test
  • In place density & moisture by nuclear (troxler) and sand-cone methods
  • Dynamic Cone Penetrometer
  • Concrete carbonation Depth
  • Pile integrity test
  • Pull-off and Pull-out tests
  • Rebar & corrosion survey
  • Schmidt Hammer
  • Ultra sonic pulse velocity
  • Thermal Conductivity Tests
  • Static and lateral pile load tests
