Product Search by Test Determination and Standard
In all sections of civil engineering and particularly in soil mechanics, the engineer during the design stage must ensure that the analysis of soil properties relate directly to the relevant foundation or structure. When highway or railway earthworks, bases, subbases and dams are constructed and subgrades are prepared, it is necessary to determine the compactability properties of the material. Using procedures involving extracting, examining and testing representative samples the engineer can compute a model very close to the real situation. In recent years we have seen a significant contribution to experimental analysis resulting from more sophisticated testing procedures, up dating of many International Standards, and publication of good testing manuals and procedures.
