Proctor Compaction Testing
Both standard and modified proctor tests are used to measure the optimum moisture content of any soil and maximum dry density. Proctor proposed tests to determine the relationship between moisture content, dry density or void ratio of compacted soil in a standard manner and to determine the OMC for the soil.
Concrete Compression Testing
The compressive strength of concrete is the most common performance measure used. The compression test measures concrete strength in the hardened state. The test results are primarily used to determine that the concrete mixture as delivered meets the requirements of the specifies strength in the job specification.
Soil Compaction Testing
Soil compaction is used to increase soil strength in the construction of high load structures such as dams, paved roadways, and construction projects that rely on the stability of embankments. Loose soil can be compacted by using mechanical equipment to remove air-voids, densifying the soil and increasing its dry unit weight.
Construction Quality Control & Quality Assurance
Our operating procedures provide direction to staff and require accurate documentation of field services. Quality control is a critical responsibility for all B3 MTE staff. We have set a standard for operating procedures for various tasks to maintain consistent project quality.
Field & Laboratory Testing
B3 MTE works with hundreds of top of the line laboratories for soil, concrete & masonry, asphalt, and aggregate testing. The laboratories we partner with follow strict quality assurance guidelines for equipment usage and calibration assuring accurate results.
