Geotechnical Lab Testing

Soil classification

  • Mechanical grain size analyses (sieves)
  • Hydrometer testing
  • Atterberg limits

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)

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

Hydraulic conductivity

  • Constant head permeameter for cohesionless samples
  • Flexible wall permeameter for clay samples

Rock core testing

  • Point Load testing
  • Unconfined compressive strength
