Licensed to conduct


Whatever soil investigation and soil testing services you need in Queensland, Australian Soil Investigations is here to help. We have a highly-qualified and certified team of geo-technicians and engineers, who ensure that any soil samples test we conduct is standardised and fully compliant with the relevant laws. Some of the soil tests we carry out in our labs include:

Gravity Test – Test performed to determine the ratio of unit weight of soil solids to water. 

Soil Compaction Tests – Test performed to establish the compaction properties of the soil in your preferred site.

Atterberg Limits Tests – Test performed on fine-grained soil to determine its critical water content. Usually, there are three stages or limits that establish fine-grained soils’ properties: plastic limit, liquid limit, and shrinkage limit.

Moisture Content Test – Test carried out to determine the amount of water the soil contains. It is usually expressed as the percentage or fraction of dry mass. The moisture content test is determined using various methods, including the Pycnometer method, oven-drying method, radiation method, calcium carbide method, etc. However, the most commonly used method is the oven-drying method, which entails weighing the soil sample and drying it in an oven at 110-115 degrees Celsius.

Dry Density Test – Test used to categorize the soil into three types – dense, medium, and loose. A lesser density signifies a stronger foundation.

Why Soil Investigation &
Testing is Important?


Soil investigation involves determining the soil’s type and rock strata at a site by drilling holes into the ground to obtain samples. This is done to make sure that the soil conditions and substructure, which is ultimately going to hold up a structure, is safe and enduring. 

It is of great significance for any civil engineering project that a proper and precise soil investigation is conducted. This investigation usually forms the basis for designing, planning, and constructing the structure. In fact, the performance and serviceability of structure largely depend on soil conditions investigation’s adequacy and accuracy. 

Unfortunately, many people underrate the significance of soil investigation during the initial phase of a project. The most common causes of foundation failure, is inadequate knowledge of site classification and ground conditions. 

There have been some cases where trying to overlook site classification testing have led to catastrophic results. Evidently, structures designed on inadequate or assumed data are synonymous with long term complications. Even worse, it may result in loss of life, endanger residents, damage neighbouring buildings, or be rendered unfit for the intended purpose.
