ACES Dubai Introduces Instrument to Measure In-Situ Modulus of Soil Deformation

Date: 
15 Jun 2013

ACES Dubai is pleased to announce that it has introduced a robust, time and cost effective method / instrument to directly measure the in-situ modulus of deformation of soils. Further, measurement of shear wave velocity is also included as an option.

The result will include a 20cm interval Ed profile and Ko profile in addition to Vs profile if required.

Please refer to below schematic presentation on the instrument. The below links provide further information on the test and interpretations.

The instrument is widely used in almost all regions worldwide including USA, Canada, Europe, Asia, Australia, and so on.  ACES Dubai is pleased to bring it to this important region.
