Introduction: Why Geotechnical Testing Matters

When it comes to the construction and engineering sectors, knowing the ground you’re building on is crucial. Enter geotechnical testing, a specialized process aimed at evaluating the characteristics and properties of soil and rock materials. Also known as soil testing or soil investigation, this methodology ensures that the ground is reliable enough to support various structures such as buildings, roads, and dams. Here at Coastline Engineering, we offer expert geotechnical testing services in three major California areas: Los Angeles, Milpitas, and San Diego.

What is Geotechnical Testing?

Geotechnical testing is the science of understanding the Earth’s crust. By analyzing soil and rock samples, engineers can determine a plethora of factors, including density, moisture content, shear strength, and even chemical composition. This extensive evaluation provides crucial information needed to make informed decisions in the design, construction, and maintenance phases.

The Scope of Geotechnical Testing Services at Coastline Engineering

Subsurface Exploration

One of the initial steps of soil testing involves subsurface exploration. Our team of skilled professionals drill into the soil to collect samples, providing us with valuable data to analyze its characteristics.

Laboratory Analysis

Once the soil and rock samples are collected, they undergo a rigorous laboratory analysis. Using state-of-the-art equipment and techniques, we explore the material’s physical, mechanical, and chemical properties.

Data Interpretation and Reporting

Interpreting the data is where the real magic happens. Our engineers provide comprehensive reports that lay the groundwork (no pun intended) for future construction and engineering tasks.
