Falcon’s Construction Material Division offers Physical and mechanical analysis of wide range of materials used by the construction and its allied industry.The testings are carried out as per the International Standards and specifications as defined in BS, ASTM, BS EN, AASHTO, CIRIA, DIN, ISO etc. In certain cases, the tests can also be performed in accordance with the customer specified test methods or procedure.
The core services offered by the material Division includes testing of Soil, Aggregates & Rock, Concrete, Steel & Steel products, Asphalt, Cement, Water, Geosynthetics etc.
We also undertakes concrete investigation works using destructive and non destructive techniques to evaluate an existing concrete building, which will alert the consultant and engineers regarding any significant features that could compromise the structural performance.
Falcon Lab conducts range of soil test in accordance to various international test standards. E.g. Sieve Analysis, Liquid Limit, Plastic Limit, Plasticity Index, CBR, Plate Load, Insitu CBR, Chemical Analysis, MDD/OMC etc.
We conduct series of testing on hardened and fresh concrete e.g. compressive strength, durability, concrete cores, Chemical Analysis, Trial Mix Verification, Temperature Monitoring, Chemical Analysis etc. In addition, we have the facility for testing of masonry blocks, paving blocks.
We have the facility to conduct in depth studies of structural investigation and feel product to declare that we are construction Doctors Our Team has more than 50 certification in concrete studies and we have most advanced instrument e.g. Pundit Live, Concrete Scanners, GPR, 3D Laser Scanner, UPVC, Rebound Hammer, Concrete Resistivity Meter etc. Our Experts have conducted various specialized investigation in various parts of UAE, Qatar and Kazakistan, Pakistan and India .
Falcon Laboratory LLC has most advanced UTM having capacity of 1200kN. The purpose was to ensure that there should not be any milling or reduction of diameter as that practices may ultimately impact on the ultimate tensile strength as well as elongation of steel. Our machine is capable for testing of bolts, nuts, PT strands also.
We have recently included our OES for chemical analysis of steel which is accurate, precise and prompt to have composition of steel.
Aggregate & Asphalt Testing
We have the facility for conducting the marshal properties test of asphalt, coring, thickness, density, voids, bitumen content etc. For aggregate wide variety of tests are available at Falcon Lab e.g. Sieve Analysis, Flakiness Index, Elongation Index, Water Absorption, Specific Gravity, chemical analysis.
Green Building Testing
Strongly believing in energy conservation for next generation, Falcon Lab has taken various initiatives and achieved the milestone of first accredited lab for U value of Concrete Products. In addition we have the facility for Air Leakage and water testing.
Cement as a binder, a substance that sets and hardens independently, & can bind other material together such as steel, bricks, & many other likewise civil material.
Test for cement performed here are:
Aggregate is a term for any particulate material It includes gravel, crushed stone, sand, slag recycled concrete & geosynthetic aggregate. Aggregate make upto 60-80 % of concrete mix and provide compressive strength & bulk to concrete. Aggregate are divided into either ‘Coarse’ or ‘Fine’ depending up to size of particulates.
Tests on aggregate we provide are:
Steel is the leading construction material fo sustain ability, as it can be multi cycled endlessly with no detrimental effect on its properties. It does not warp, buckle, twist, or bend and is flexible & easy to install. Because of its increased quality & ease of maintenance steel is an attractive building material. Use of Steel in Civil has enormous advantages benefits Steel structures are significantly lighter than concrete equivalents, they require less extensive foundations, which reduce the environmental impact of the build. If steel pile foundations are used, these can be extracted and recycled or reused at the end of a building’s life, leaving no waste material on site. Steel is not only durable & economical but also proofs to avoid environmental harms.
