Igeotest I + D + i: collaborative sampling in soft soils with Sherbrook
Within the collaboration agreement between Igeotest and the Polytechnic University of Catalonia for the development of research of high quality geotechnical sampling in soft soils, Igeotest has completed the second phase of the project. This phase consists in extracting undisturbed samples of different types with the usual sampler Igeotest.
This agreement is part of the project TRACE TRA2009-0076 "high quality geotechnical soil sampling soft" funded by the Ministry of Science and Innovation, with support from the ERDF.
The extraction was performed in exactly the same place where Sherbrook samples were taken during the first phase of the project.
The third phase will be the implementation by the UPC laboratory tests on the samples. Igeotest keep you informed of the results obtained in this research in future publications.
