PipesThermal Conductivity Testing can assist in identifying possible failures related to the amount of heat exchanged with the ground, or the amount of heat conducted between an electrical transmission line and the ground.  It measures thermal conductivity, resistivity, and diffusivity.


  • Thermal resistivity and conductivity are crucial for underground transmission line designs. Understanding the thermal properties of the native soil surrounding the utility, the concrete used to encase the utility, and the backfill materials used, help ensure that the construction materials have adequate capabilities of dissipating the heat generated by the utility.
  • Laboratory analysis of concrete mixtures, including Fluidized Thermal Backfill, and of both native soils and backfill materials, allows for the determination of soil thermal characteristics under different conditions
  • ATL’s utilizes a thermal properties analyzer, compliant with ASTM D5334 and IEEE 442.



  • Field measurement of in-situ soils: Portable equipment is capable of making field measurements of in-place materials and native soils.
  • Thermal Dry-Out Curve: Multi-point curve provides relationship between conductivity and moisture for a given material. Use for material approval or confirmation of critical values from design through construction.
  • Sample Processing: ATL can perform testing on intact specimens of soil, rock, and concrete as well as remold specimens to a specified density. Our sample remolding process, without drilling the probe into the specimens, allows accurate readings without disturbance to the structure of the sample.

Vibration Monitoring for Construction

VibraPicture2tion monitoring is a specialized procedure for recording, analyzing and quantifying vibrations resulting from construction operations.

Atlantic Testing Laboratories’ specialists utilize a 3-component seismograph in accordance with applicable standards.

Vibration Monitoring Services:

Pre and Post Construction Building Condition Surveys includes:

  • Photographic and video documentation of the interior and exterior condition   of the building
  • The extent and location of existing signs of building distress

Vibration Monitoring Plan identifies:

  • Limits of vibration monitoring
  • Maximum allowable Peak Particle Velocities (PPV)
  • Location of seismograph placement
  • Structures and/or utilities to be monitored
  • Details for anchoring the geophone

Vibration Monitoring provides real time PPV’s and frequencies of construction vibrations and expedites the on-site decision making process.
