Research and expertise capability
There are only a limited number of soil testing laboratories capable of performing non-standard and sophisticated soil tests. The Centre for Geotechnical Research (CGR) can provide such testing services.
Particle processes and technology can be applied to rock crushing, milling of ore and flour milling etc.
Advanced and specialist numerical analysis (such as finite element analysis) of soil and rock problems can be performed. Particle crushing technology is also available for a range of problems in geomechanics and related areas.
Special one-off model tests can be designed and performed.
Providing soil properties for use in advanced design of a wide range of structures and earthworks, such as retaining walls, foundations, tunnels, roads, embankments, landfills, slopes and excavations.
We can provide advanced means of analysis for design in the areas mentioned above.
