Classifying materials to their engineering properties.
Classification testing (also referred to as Particle Size Distribution or Grading) includes a set of tests that can be undertaken individually or as a suite, to classify materials to their engineering properties. The results of these tests dictate how and where a material can be used, how it needs to be handled, how it may perform and what properties and behaviours it will show. Additionally, classification tests can offer some background to other testing data and with all the available information, whether a material will show compliance to a specification and perhaps, more importantly, whether it is suitable for purpose.
Classification testing relates to all material classes and offers an important testing regime that is undertaken across any site and any material found on it.
