Compaction control and bearing capacity
Measuring the level of compaction or bearing capacity of the formation for unbound or partially bound layers (sub-grade, sub-base, base) and being able to get results immediately to make decisions is very important. Our range of geotechnical test equipment enables you to do this in applications that include road construction, cuttings, tunnels, trenches and embankments, railway track beds, airport runways, taxiways, aprons and parking areas, hard standing areas, landfill sites, dams including mine tailings dams, wind farms, temporary pads for mobile crane outriggers or piling rigs, building and temporary structure foundations, pipe & cable laying, electricity pylons / overhead transmission, tank farms and others.
Site characterisation is unarguably the most important, but also most “difficult”, component of geo-engineering. Our equipment is designed to improve the quality of site characterisation and reduce the difficulties involved.
