Cable percussive boreholes
Cable percussive boreholes are a common method of site investigation. Using a rig towed by a four-wheel-drive vehicle or a specialist cut-down rig suited to restricted access locations, RSK can investigate most sites. Our in-situ testing techniques including standard penetration testing, permeability testing, borehole vane testing and packer testing, can all be undertaken in the boreholes to enable our engineers to provide information for geotechnical design. We retrieve disturbed and undisturbed samples from the boreholes for inspection and logging by engineers and subsequent testing in our laboratories. We can also install instrumentation in the boreholes.
