Earth Reinforcement Testing

Earth Reinforcement Testing Inc. (ERTesting) provides specialty testing services for condition assessment, performance monitoring and inspections of dams, roadways, railways, and utilities that are often supported with earth reinforcement systems. Earth reinforcement systems include mechanically stabilized earth (MSE), soil nails, rock bolts, ground anchors and tiebacks. These systems serve as tie-downs for various structures and provide support for earth retaining walls, embankments  soil excavations and rock cuts. ERTesting can assist with service life modeling, screening for corrosive conditions, construction quality assurance, forensic investigations, performance and asset management programs.  CLICK HERE TO VIEW OUR SERVICES
