Sample penetration test during geotechnical survey
In the field, JR Paine deploys geotechnical survey tools, testing procedures, and site monitoring for accurate and timely results of soil and subsurface conditions from project investigation, design, and construction. These investigation, testing, and monitoring processes are vital to investigate the underlying soils and groundwater conditions with collection of samples, field in-situ tests, and instrumentation to assess the geotechnical parameters. JR Paine operates in-house and mobile geotechnical laboratories with qualified technicians, industry certifications, and specialized equipment to carry our soils , rocks, and aggregate testing as well as material testing of concrete and asphalt. Our geotechnical field and laboratory testing services include a wide range of accredited and certified services that include:. Geotechnical desk surveys for recognisance and planning of ground investigations using regional geology and engineering studies, aerial photography, terrain analysis using 3-D imaging, literature research, and site visits with interviews. Geotechnical-Standard Invasive Site Investigations.
Please see below for a selection of case studies demonstrating our cones and equipment for a sample of the work we do. Please get in touch if you would like a quote for your upcoming project. We have just completed a research project in Folkestone with a student from Imperial College London. The tracked rig and seismic equipment was used. The aim was to verify a projected geological model of the ground underneath the seismic station as well as investigating the likely shear wave seismic speeds in the top few metres of ground. The testing went very well and the resulting data will be used to improve modelling of such station sites, hopefully increasing the safety of sensitive infrastructure in the future. Read More.
Inertia can sometimes prevent progress. In Ontario, there is a massive historical database and a lot of momentum that supports the use of the Standard Penetration Test SPT as a benchmark for geotechnical investigations. The SPT test has changed little since its invention in and remains at the core of standard industry practice, despite evidence to suggest that it is not suitable for all soil conditions.
