MATERIAL TESTING

SOIL

Quality of soil not only determines the bearing capacity but it ensures to determine the structure stabilization. Soil test is very important step of construction before it begins. If the soil testing is not done then the building will be exposed to unknown dangers and might the end result could be fatal. We conduct testing of the following parameters :

  • Standard & Modified proctor test
  • CBR
  • Direct Shear test
  • Consolidation
  • Triaxial
  • Permeability Swelling pressure

Rock

Due to the immense use of rocks in construction activities, it is necessary to ensure that the rocks used have adequate strength and stability. Thus, several tests must be conducted on the rocks to determine their suitability for the particular type of construction.

  • UCS
  • Point load index
  • Density
  • SG
  • Porosity
  • Petro graphic examination

Coarse & Fine aggregates

Test aggregate to determine the quality of material. Doing a simple visual test is inadequate. Aggregate quality is based on gradation, fines content, and plasticity. Select good quality aggregates to improve construction materials and reduce maintenance.

  • Sieve analysis
  • Impact Value
  • Crushing value
  • Abrasion value
  • Stripping value
  • petrography

Concrete

To have a sustainable concrete structure, durability is key. Measuring the durability factor of concrete to determine its longevity is difficult to predetermine. It is, however, an important factor in identifying how sustainable the structure will be.

  • WPT
  • RCPT
  • ISAT
  • Water absorption
  • Split tensile
  • Flexural

Admixture

Admixtures are an important part of controlling the physical attributes of concrete. Admixtures are commonly used to control the concrete flow, shrinkage, air entrainment, setting times (both retarding and accelerating), water reduction and corrosion inhibition.

  • Workability
  • Air content
  • Bleeding
  • Setting time
  • Compatibility Test

Cementious material

Quality Tests on cement are carried out to check the strength and quality of the cement used in construction. It helps to identify the usage of cement for different purposes based on its durability and performance.

  • Cement
  • Flyash
  • GGBS
  • Silica fume

Metals

Mechanical testing is a standard and essential part of any design and manufacturing process. Whether it is characterizing the properties of materials or providing validation for final products, ensuring safety is the primary mission of all mechanical testing.

  • Reinforcement Steel
  • Structural steel
  • Couplers
  • 7ply strands
  • Binding wire

Bitumen – Paving Bitumen , Modified Bitumen

Bituminous materials are used for road construction, roofing, waterproofing, and other applications. Various tests are conducted on bitumen to assess its consistency, gradation, viscosity, temperature susceptibility, and safety.

  • Flash & Fire point
  • Ductility
  • Softening Point
  • Penetration
  • Viscosity
  • Loss on Heating
  • RTFOT
