Brilliant Rack Services include full analysis of your site conditions to ensure you choose the optimal foundation and racking solutions.
Soil borings and analysis
Determines soil consistency and composition, water table impact on site and presence of rock or boulders.
A procedure to assess the particle size distribution (also called gradation) of a granular material. The size distribution is of importance to the way the material performs in use.
The ability of soil to safely carry pressure placed on it from any engineered structure without undergoing a failure from significant settlements.
Compaction can be determined in several ways. We offer the DCP method to determine soil capacity.
The potential of soil-covered slopes to withstand and undergo movement. If the forces available to resist movement are greater than the forces driving movement, the slope is considered stable.
Soil properties (pH, resistivity)
Soil pH measures soils’ alkalinity or acidity. pH is measured on a scale of 1-14, with 7 as the neutral mark. Soil resistivity measures how much soil resists the flow of electricity. Along with pH, it indicates the corrosive potential of the soil.
