Who is Geomechanical Testing for?
Geomechanical testing is a specialised form of rock and soil testing performed in the preliminary stages of a construction project, as well as during the build. Geomechanical testing is necessary to identify protentional risks and hazards in the soil material, and the results contribute to the overall design of the project.
Kiwa’s industry leading geomechanical testing laboratory is based in Brisbane, Australia. The facility is the preferred critical design partner, providing test data for civil and mining projects across Australia and most parts of the globe.
We work with clients across mining, civil construction and infrastructure to provide testing across areas of rock & soil mechanics, aggregates and calibrations, such as:
- High pressure rock triaxial
- Rock UCS
- Rock Direct Shear
- Soil Triaxial
- Soil Direct Shear
- Direct Tensile, and many other specialist methods.
