The primary use with Geotechnical Testing Equipment is a non-invasive, fast, soil characteristic / parameter identification tool available in a report format, containing graphs and tabular outputs. For in-situ testing on less complex geotechnical projects, Engeolab has access to a number of in-situ testing equipment.
Typical applications include:
Un-drained shear strength – cohesive soils
Detection of slip surfaces in slopes
Coefficient of consolidation and permeability walls)
OCR and Ko in clays
Operative soil modulus M – equivalent to constrained modulus
