Soil mechanical laboratory tests are the basis for soil static analyses in the course of the planning of a building. For the determination of all soil mechanical and physical parameters, our laboratory experts carry out laboratory tests in the laboratory of the MARUM Research Center of the University of Bremen.

Geo-Engineering.org GmbH has access to the equipment for carrying out the following laboratory tests:

Determination of the water content according to DIN 18121

Grain size distribution according to DIN 18123

Consistency limits according to DIN 18122 (liquid, plastic and shrinkage limits)

Loss on ignition according to DIN 18128
