Specialist Geotech Services

With over 75 cell positions we offer a comprehensive UKAS accredited testing service for effective stress and triaxial permeability testing

Terra Tek offer multistage and single stage drained and undrained effective stress testing on 38mm, 75mm and 100mm diameter specimens to assess slope stability of soils. We also perform triaxial permeability testing to determine the coefficient of permeability of clay liners in landfill sites as well as the permeability of cement/bentonite slurry walls for piling contractors.

Terra Tek has over 75 test positions available within our three UKAS accredited laboratories in the UK.

As one of the largest capabilities in the UK this gives our clients the advantage of completing very large contracts within short timescales.

As well as a large capacity for effective stress and permeability testing we also offer a large and small shear box testing service. Terra Tek also has facilities to perform rowe cell consolidation and ring shear testing.

Large Shearbox (300mm)

Our three large shearbox machines enable us to provide a rapid turnaround for granular materials whilst simultaneously performing tests on cohesive soils, which can take much longer to complete.

UKAS accreditation is held for shear box and large-scale horizontal permeability for testing granular materials.

Small Shear box (60mm)

As a group we have a total of twenty 60mm shearbox machines. This gives us the flexibility to perform testing on granular and cohesive materials simultaneously.
