GEOTECHNICAL LABORATORY TESTING

NEAS provides geotechnical testing services through our AASHTO-accredited testing laboratories. Our geologists and trained  technicians, under the direction of our geotechnical engineers, perform a host of tests and analyses related to soils and geotechnical investigations

NEAS’ well-equipped laboratory allows for the processing and testing of a large volume of soil and rock samples at any given time, therefore, we can handle virtually any size testing assignment. Staff expertise and ongoing training in the use of gINT geotechnical data management software helps ensure that logs and test data are managed efficiently and that reports are standardized.

OUR LABORATORY TESTS INCLUDE:

  • Soil classification

  • Atterberg limits (liquid & plastic limits)

  • Sieve Analysis

  • Moisture content

  • Density

  • Hydrometer analysis

  • Specific gravity

  • Consolidation

  • Compaction characteristics (Proctor)

  • Triaxial compression

  • Unconfined compressive strength

  • Direct shear

  • Permeability

  • California bearing ratio (CBR)
