Types of Soil Testing Services for Construction

  • Specific Gravity Test- This soil test in UAE is determined by using several methods. They need to measure the ratio of density of a substance to the density of water - a.k.a. specific gravity.

    • Measuring Flask Method

    • Density Bottle Method - commonly used by experts

    • Shrinkage Limit Method

    • Pyconometer Method - another common method used by professionals

    • Gas Jar Method 

  • Proctor’s Compaction Test-  This is done to find out the compaction characteristics of the soil. In a soil compaction test in UAE, the air dried sample is divided into 4 to 6 smaller samples.
