Testing and Research

Soil & Foundation Test

Each region has different soil characteristics. Thus, we believe it is essential to understand regional characteristics by carrying out ground research and soil tests. Our soil and foundation laboratory conducts various kinds of physical and mechanical tests on ground and foundation sites.

Major testing and research activities

  • Soil tests based on requirements set by standards.
  • Unconfined compression tests of soil-cement.
  • Quality and performance tests of base course materials reproduced from concrete and asphalt waste.
  • Friction and permeability testing between soil and artificial materials.
  • Survey and diagnosis of building damage caused by geomechanical hazards such as ground subsidence and foundation problems.
  • Research and development of soil testing methods and soil improvement as well as foundation engineering.
