Field Tests and Techniques

STATS use a wide range of specialist testing techniques to complement our ground investigation work.

A list of techniques that we incorporate consist of the following.

  • Dynamic Cone Penetration (DCP) Tests
  • Perth Sands Penetration (PSP) Tests
  • ASTM DCP Tests for Compaction Control and Forensic Investigation for runways and highways
  • Instrumented DCP Tests for complex issues and Tip Resistance
  • Nuclear Density Measurements for Compaction Control
  • Plate Load Tests for Bearing Capacity and Settlement
  • Field Vane Shear Tests for Field Strength
  • Light Drop Weight Tests for Field CBR Estimation and Compaction Control
  • Falling Head Permeability Tests
  • Electrical and Thermal Resistivity Measurements for Soil Property
  • Geotechnical Instrumentation Installation and Monitoring of Ground Movement

In this regard, we collaborate with the industry’s finest environmental consultants to deliver joint Geotech and Environmental site investigation and provide a customised program for each of our valued clients. STATS is NATA accredited for a range of laboratory of testing services.
