We provide pressure meter testing and interpretation in soil or rock

formations in order to provide you with parameters for designing
high rise buildings, bridges, rails, tunnels etc.

The pressure meter test is an in-situ stress controlled loading test
performed on the wall of a borehole using a cylindrical probe which
can expand radially.

From the test readings (volume variation based on controlled
pressure), a stress-strain curve can be obtained and the following
parameters obtained:

  • Pressure meter modulus
  • Creep pressure
  • Limit pressure

Pressure meter testing has the following benefits:

  • Can be conveniently used with drilling equipment.
  • Tests can be done in soft clay or loose sands
  • Can be used to accurately design shallow foundations and
    for lateral and vertical capacity of deep foundations
