Specialized Geotechnical Testing
Pitcher Services employs knowledgeable engineers and operators for additional specialized testing depending on your project needs.
- SPT Energy Testing/Calibration
- Vane Shear Testing (VST)
- Pressuremeter Testing (PMT)
- Dilatometer & Seismic DMT
Pitcher operates the Geonor H-10 vane system. The Geonor H-10 uses an up-hole motor to turn the downhole vane for the test. The system uses different vane sizes for downhole testing. Vane Selection is based upon the expected strength of the soils being tested.
Vane shear testing provides an in situ measurement of undrained shear strength.
