A.M. Geoconsult’s ISO 17025:2005 accredited laboratoryadministers a series of tests on disturbed and undisturbed soil samplesretrieved from subsurface exploration to measure a gamut of direct andindex properties of soils.  Accurate results produced by ourstandardized tests are required by the geotechnical engineer inpreparing a reliable evaluation report.  Moreover, our laboratory,supported by highly-trained personnel and well-maintained equipment,also verifies compliance of construction materials with project andquality specifications.  With these services, clients are able tolessen probable material replacements, deteriorations, and/or failuresand thus, save more.  

Examples of mechanical testing of soils, concrete, asphalt, aggregates, and steel that we perform include:

  • -Unified Soil Classification System (USCS)
  • -AASHTO Soil Classification
  • -Laboratory Determination of Moisture Content of Soils
  • -Liquid Limit, Plastic Limit, and Plasticity Index of Soils
  • -Particle Size Analysis of Soils
  • -Particle Size Analysis of Soils Using Hydrometer
  • -Specific Gravity of Soils
  • -Modified Proctor Test
  • -Standard Proctor Test
  • -The California Bearing Ratio Test
  • -Unconfined Compressive Strength of Cohesive Soils
  • -Unconsolidated-Undrained Triaxial Compression
  • -Consolidated Drained Triaxial Compression ·
  • -One-Dimensional Consolidation Properties
  • -Direct Shear Test of Soils
  • -Permeability of Granular Soils
  • -Permeability of Fine-Grained Soils
  • -Moisture, Ash, and Organic Matter of Peat
  • -Shrinkage Factors of Soils by the Wax Method
  • -Sieve Analysis of Fine and Coarse Aggregates
  • -Unit Weight of Aggregates
  • -Specific Gravity and Absorption of Aggregates
  • -Soundness of Aggregates
  • -Abrasion of Coarse Aggregates
  • -Compressive Strength of Cylindrical Concrete Specimens
  • -Splitting Tensile Strength of Cylindrical Concrete Specimens
  • -Slump of Hydraulic-Cement Concrete
