SOIL TESTING LABORATORY

BPC INDIA provides laboratory testing of soil, rock, and construction materials for site characterization, geotechnical design, quality control, and performance assessment purposes.

100 + ProjectsInfrastructure Projects for Highway and Railway

Certified/NABL LabComplete Solution of Soil Testings Analysis

10 Projects Important Major Bridges on Ganga, Bramhaputra, Mahanadi and Dawki.

25+Oil and Gas Projects

The output from laboratory tests is individually reviewed by the Geotechnical engineering department.

We offer a wide selection of soil test equipment that meets Indian Standard and ASTM test standards governing a range of tests. Typical tests are performed to determine grain size analysis, moisture content, and characteristics at varying moisture contents (Atterberg Limits). Other tests such as triaxial, unconfined compressive strength, permeability, compaction, and density (Proctor) and direct shear testing are also frequently run. Test results are used in selecting the right foundations and paving materials indicated for constructing roads, bridges, and other infrastructures.

Certified/NABL Accredited Testing facilities

Comprehensive Soil testing at Laboratory & site to determine mechanical properties and to justify the ability to support your structure. Our energetic team is equipped with modern soil testing instruments & accredited laboratory, we conduct physical, mechanical, and chemical properties testing on soil both at our laboratory and in-situ conditions as per project requirement.

  • Intact samples are stored in the proper position in the laboratory and extracted from the sampler using a customized manufactured extruder.
  • Physical properties like Bulk density, Dry Density, Relative Density, Specific gravity of soil solids, Particle size distribution( Grain size analysis), Moisture content(Water Content), Consistency limits-Plastic limit, liquid limit, and shrinkage limits, swelling and shrinkage parameters, etc.
  • Strength parameters like Direct shear test, Vane Shear test, Unconfined Compressive strength, triaxial test, and Consolidation testing.
  • In-situ testing like Permeability, Packer Test, Dynamic cone Penetration test (DCPT), Plate load test (PLT), Cyclic plate load test (CPLT), Static cone penetration test (SCPT), Borehole Pressuremeter test, Standard penetration test (SPT), Field CBR, FDD, in-situ moisture content test, Field Vane Shear Test.
