In Situ Site Investigation have a dedicated sample and core logging facility, based in Rotherham, South Yorkshire. The facility is equipped with two core splitters, together with core photography set-up and logging stations. Samples from both land and marine investigations are routinely processed, with soil, marine sediments and rock photographed and logged by our highly experienced team of in-house geologists. In Situ SI routinely log to the current European standards (ISO 14688 and 14689), although other national standards, e.g. ASTM, DIN and Danish, can be utilised where required.
During the logging process, in-situ measurements such as undrained shear strength can be carried out via torvane, laboratory vane or fall cone. In Situ SI can also carry out thermal and electrical resistivity testing. All logging and testing data is digitally recorded and converted into AGS format for immediate import into a database, such that exploratory hole logs can be provided within 24 hours.
If required In Situ SI can also provide geotechnical laboratory testing schedules and manage the testing program. Geotechnical testing of soil, marine sediments and rock is carried out at a UKAS accredited partner laboratory, also based in South Yorkshire.
