SOIL Testing Equipment

UTEST Soil Testing Equipments are used for understanding and investigating the physical/mechanical properties, critical characteristic behaviors, performance of soil, unbound and hydraulically bound mixtures during compression, shear or inner liquid flow under dynamic and vibrating loading conditions. Soil characteristics are also used for deciding the most suitable method for excavating underground tunnels.

Every man-made structure needs a foundation that will resist to the exposed forces, such as live loads, dead loads and wind loads . The soil tests provide the engineering firms and construction companies with the ability to predict the mechanical behavior of soils in order to design foundations that ensure resistance to forces likely to act upon it, including any unusual / extreme events such as earthquakes or hurricanes, thus providing a safe environment for people in or around the structures.

 In the soil section, UTEST Testing Equipment is basically grouped in six main headings:

  • Field Inspection and Sampling
  • Laboratory Testing/Specimen Preparation
  • Soil Classification Tests
  • Soil Mechanic Tests
  • Compacted Road Base and Sub-Base Soils Tests
  • Soil Permability and Dispersibility
  • Advanced Soil Testing Systems
