Project description

Arthe is experienced in the coordination, evaluation and reporting of soil and laboratory investigation for different types of projects.
Based on the professional knowledge of Arthe a investigationplan for every project can be custom made. Also archieval research data can be used.

SOIL INVESTIGATION

  • Penetration tests (CPT, dissipation tests, CPM, SPT)
  • Soil boring and sampling
  • Monitoring wells and piezometers
  • In-situ vaintest
  • Pressure transducers and automatic dataloggers
  • Inclinometers
  • Land surveying

Proceedings

LABORATORY INVESTIGATION

  • Sample description (classification) and photography
  • Volume weight, moisture content, grain size distribution
  • Critical, minimum and maximum density
  • Void ratio and porosity, Atterbergs limits
  • Compression tests (K0 en CRS, swell)
  • Triaxial tests (compression and extension, K0-consolidated, (un-)drained))
  • Shear tests (DSS), vaintest
  • Minearology and chemical analysis
  • Falling head and constant headtest
Based on the results of the soil- and laboratory investigation the necessary soil parameters can be derived according to Eurocode 7.
