Material Testing, Inspection & Quality Control Services

Storage Tank ManagementEngineers and scientist dealing with materials including construction materials as well as geo-materials are required to understand their characteristics as well as their performance upon completion of construction. In order to ensure materials are performing as expected and also to obtain the strength and compressibility of such materials to be used as input parameters in the design process, several types of laboratory tests are required to be carried out in a controlled environment. DST has established many laboratories qualified for carrying out soils, rocks, aggregates, concrete and asphalts testing. In addition, DST is equipped with various types of field testing equipment to carry out quality control tests in the field for various types of civil engineering construction projects.
