Soils Density Testing

Soils density testing involves comparing the field compaction of the soils with the laboratory tested values (Proctor). Any fill placed underneath the structures are compacted to the stated specifications. Prior to density testing, the materials are verified to meet the project specifications. The project specifications also specify the density and moisture content requirements. Field density testing is performed using a nuclear density gauge.

Soils testing services include:

  • Proof rolling observation
  • In place density testing
  • Fill placement observation
