SOIL TESTING and GEOTECHNICAL INVESTIGATIONS

We provide Soil and Geotechnical Investigation Testing Services commonly said as Soil testing services with a highly trained team of professionals. The Ace Test House, Being well-equipped with all the requisite machines and technology, we cater to the diversified requirements of the clients as per their varied demands. We offer these services to help to diagnose the condition of the soil and come up with specific solutions.

What is the purpose of Soil Testing?

  • Testing of soil (for engineering purposes) is normally accomplished to evaluate its physical properties which have an effect on or manipulate its conduct when it comes to numerous construction purposes. Although testing activities consist of on-site/in-situ and laboratory testing, the latter one is believed to offer a higher and correct estimate of its properties.

  • Each of the different properties of soil offers an estimate of a selected feature of it; just like the moisture content of a soil specimen offer a manual to the compaction process, besides governing the Atterberg limits (which symbolize the soils plastic and the liquid limits), consistency, shrinkage characteristics, and a number of different energy houses.

  • Size-grading of soil facilitates withinside the optimum designing for getting ready concrete mixes and porosity along-with permeability tests are conducted on a soil sample to decide the suitability of semi-pervious substances to be used in the core of fill dams. Soil testing labs additionally aids in excavation activities and buildings of earthworks (cut & fill).

 

Types of  Soil Testing:

  • Chemical Composition of Soil: Chemical Soil analysis determines the content of basic plant nutrients; nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, pH, humus content, total calcium carbonate (CaCO3), available lime, organic matter, total Sulphur (S), trace elements, and other physical characteristics (capacity, permeability, density, pH - value).

  • Physical Test: (Briefly) the CBR: The California Bearing magnitude relation test may be a penetration methodology meant for the assessment of subgrade strength of roads, pavements, or different road work testing services. The outcomes acquired by these tests are used with the empirical curves to figure out the thickness of pavement and its elemental layers, PL, LL, Sieve Analysis, and so forth.

  • Grain-size Analysis by Hydrometer: Measuring the particle size distribution of fine-grained soils like clay and silt is best performed using the soil hydrometer test. This sedimentation method is familiar to all geotechnical laboratories in Delhi NCR. It calculates the size of soil particles from the speed at which they settle out of suspension from a liquid. Results from the Laboratory Ace Test House, test show the grain size distribution for soils finer than the No. 200 (75µm) sieve. However, when combined with a sieve analysis, tends to offer a complete gradation profile of soils containing coarser materials.

  • Consolidation Test: Soil Consolidation refers to the process in which the volume of a saturated (partially or fully) soil decreases due to applied stress. The increment of applied stress that causes consolidation may be due to either natural loads (e.g. sedimentation processes), or human-made loads (e.g. the construction of a building or an embankment above a soil mass) or even the decrease of the groundwater table.

  • Unconfined Compression Test: The primary purpose of the unconfined compression test is to quickly obtain a measure of compressive strength for those soil types that possess sufficient cohesion to permit testing in the unconfined state.

  • • Soil Permeability Test: Soil permeability, or hydraulic conductivity, is the rate of the flow of water through soil materials, and it is an essential characteristic across a huge spectrum of engineering and Geotechnical disciplines.

  • Soil Investigation Test: Geotechnical investigation is an integral part of the construction process which is done to obtain information about the physical characteristics of soil/rock around a site. It is a below-ground investigation wherein the soil strata are sampled and tested in our laboratory to establish their characteristics, which will influence the construction project and other related activities.

  • Standard Penetration Test: The standard penetration test, commonly known as 'SPT', was developed to provide geotechnical engineering properties for foundation design purposes. The test is carried out within a borehole and the results can be used to determine the relative density, bearing capacity, and settlement of granular soil.

  • Load Bearing Capacity: The Test determines the capacity of the soil to support the Load applied to the ground.

  • Plate Load Test: The plate load test is one of the most accepted and frequently used geotechnical field tests for shallow foundation and pavement design purposes.

 

Soil Testing Lab in Delhi 

  
Before start construction on any site, for farming purpose, and even for various other purposes, soil testing is the crucial need that is done step-by-step by collecting soil samples and make it able to analysis, chemical or physical analysis, interpretation of analysis results, and finally making fertilizer and lime recommendations for the crops.  It is done to determine fertility, or the expected growth potential of the soil that indicates nutrient deficiencies, potential toxicities from excessive fertility and inhibitions from the presence of non-essential trace minerals.
There are various other parts in the process. Accuracy is all that matters a lot, when it comes to soil testing. For this, you need to search for the top and certified soil testing lab in Delhi.
