Soil Classification

Soils are classified based on the results of tests required by ASTM D-2487, including granulometry, Plasticity Index and Hydrometer.

Engineering Properties

Engineering properties of soils are carried out to ASTM standards, including Procter (moisture/density relationship), CBR and Unconfined shear.

Aggregate Properties

The suitability of aggregates for use in concrete and as road pavement materials can be confirmed by such tests as granulometry, ALD, ACV, TPF etc.

Concrete Mix Designs

Concrete mix designs can be carried out based on either the ACI method or BRE (UK) methods, based on the properties of representative aggregate samples.
