Laboratory research

Mos Grondmechanica has a good and fully-equipped geotechnical laboratory at its disposal, where undisturbed and disturbed soil samples are classified and tested.

Tests are conducted in accordance with Dutch and international standards. Furthermore, various material tests are conducted; including a specification of cement-bentonite (including the unconfined compression test, Brazilian tensile test, and the permeability test).

For the research of dykes and quays, Mos Grondmechanica works in accordance with the protocols of Deltares and de Stowa. In connection with Stowa, Mos Grondmechanica is also involved in the further discussion and input for the coordination of test performances of different laboratories in the Netherlands.
