Materials Quality Control
Materials quality control in geotechnical studies in involves testing and monitoring materials both on-site and in the laboratory to ensure that they meet the required standards for strength, durability, and safety. Overall, materials quality control is critical for ensuring that construction projects meet the necessary safety and performance standards.
We offer a comprehensive range of concrete testing services to our clients. These include testing for
- air content
- and spread of fresh concrete
In addition, we provide the option of monitoring concrete maturity using thermocouple monitors, which deliver real-time data on the temperature, maturity, and resistance of the concrete. This allows us to provide our clients with a complete picture of the performance and properties of their concrete, ensuring that they have the information they need to make informed decisions about their construction projects.
What exactly is a thermocouple monitor?
A thermocouple monitor is a device used to measure temperature and other related parameters in real-time. It consists of a thermocouple sensor that is inserted into the concrete, which is connected to a data logger that records and displays the temperature data. The thermocouple sensor is designed to be highly sensitive to changes in temperature, which allows it to accurately measure the temperature of the concrete as it cures and matures.
The data logger includes software that can provide real-time analysis and interpretation of the data, allowing us to monitor the progress of your concrete projects and make adjustments as needed to ensure optimal performance and safety.
In addition to these services, we offer:
- Recuperation of concrete cylinders and mortar cubes on site including extraction of the molds
- Sieve analysis
- Asphalt testing (coverage rate, temperature, compaction)
- Piling monitoring & supervision
- Grout and mortar testing
- Micro Deval and Los Angeles testing
