COMPACTION, DENSITY TEST
Various testing procedures possible. Determines the soil’s percent compacted relative to its maximum. Useful for scenarios where there is going to be heavy equipment driving over a plot, heaps loaded, or other areas where managing the settling ground is important.
Plastic limit is the moisture content within a rolled sample when it breaks at approximately 1/8” wide. Results from this test determine how prone the field sampled from is to settling.
Shear strength on a forced plane is tested until failure. Used to determine the internal friction angle and soil cohesion for application in building foundations, reservoirs, and similar supporting soil structures.
Tests shear strength on the sample’s natural plane of failure. The consolidation phase, drainage and internal pore pressure can be monitored and controlled within the tests. Measures stress levels for slope and retaining wall failures.
