Lab Tests

Laboratory tests are carried out on a soil or rock sample obtained from a test hole. Examples of a lab test include gradation test, moisture content test, chemical test etc.

Although RSLog does not process lab tests, you can enter the test results on this page. These test results can subsequently be presented on the borehole log.

To access this page:

Go to the left-hand navigation menu and select Data Entry & Design > Lab Tests.

  • Index Tests: covers the most common types of soil tests,
  • Strength Tests: covers other soil tests,
  • Chemical Test: covers the most common chemical tests for soil samples,
  • User-Defined: user can use this tab to add any lab test to the list.
