Range of Laboratory Testing Services
We perform testing services for asphalt and bituminous materials, aggregates, concrete and cement, earthwork soils and materials, soil and water corrosion tests, fire safety, fireproofing, non-destructive testing, UT (ultrasonic testing), masonry and concrete units, and structural steel. Our Laboratory Testing solutions include:
- Structural Steel
- Reinforcing Steel
- Specialty Testing
- Tensile & Elongation
Comprehensive Concrete Testing
A sophisticated concrete analysis is the most comprehensive approach for determining concrete material characteristics by including the findings of regulated laboratory testing and all mix design parameters. These tests can correctly estimate a concrete's resistance to ionic penetration in natural surroundings, which is crucial for managing, scheduling maintenance, and evaluating a steel-reinforced concrete structure's service life.
Soils Testing Services
We may examine soil suitability for structural fill, determine the requirement for moisture adjustment, and offer an overview of earthwork operations by conducting worksite tests and monitoring. Our thorough soil testing solutions include:
- Particle Size Distribution
- Soils / Formation Analysis
- Compressive Strengths
- Soil Rock Classifications
- Plasticity Characteristics
- Resilient Modulus
- Compaction Relationships
- Expansion Index
- Direct Shear
- Specific Gravity
Compliant Laboratory Testing
Highly qualified, trained, and experienced laboratory and field technicians perform thorough materials testing per national state and local test methods, including:
- American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO)
