Soil and Materials Testing

Soil and Materials Testing

Terratech Solutions Ltd. offers high quality testing on samples obtained in site investigations and construction materials. The testing capability within our laboratory enables engineering parameters to be measured for the latest design specifications for different structures including buildings, infrastructure, highways and deep foundations.

The tests available include, but are not limited to:

Soil and Aggregate Testing:

  • California bearing ratio
  • Determination of particle size distribution (Sieve Analysis)
  • Particles Finer Than 75μm
  • Determination of Moisture Content Value
  • Dry Density-Moisture content relationship (Modified and Standard proctor test)
  • Unconfined Compressive Strength
  • Dry and bulk density
  • pH & Electrical conductivity
  • Atterberg limits
  • Shear box (Direct shear)

Concrete Testing:

  • Concrete sampling and testing
  • Consistency of Fresh Concrete (slump tests)
  • Unconfined Compressive Strength
  • Concrete core testing
  • Chloride and Sulphate Content of Concrete

Asphalt Testing:

  • Marshall Mix Analyses (asphalt content, stability, flow, bulk specific gravity, granular gradation)
  • Penetration of Bituminous Materials
  • Unit weight of Aggregates
  • Asphalt Core Testing
