CORE 2021 – Conference on Railway Excellence
Insitu Test are excited to exhibit at this years CORE2021, Conference on Railway Excellence.
Huge investment in rail infrastructure is being made across the country and we are privileged to be involved in many of these projects including Inland Rail, Cross River Rail and Level Crossing Removal. Locally, WA is investing in rail more than ever before making it a greener, safer and more efficient type of transport, both in Perth and in the Pilbara.
Insitu Test’s field test equipment is used for bulk earthworks and railway formation and trackbeds, covering ballast condition assessment, soil investigation and characterisation, geotechnical drilling and compaction control.
Our equipment is used for new rail track construction, maintenance / remediation and asset management purposes and enables better field-testing outcomes compared to the current traditional methods (faster, more accurate, more representative, providing better insight, without errors, immediate GPS located results that are visually presented, more cost effective etc).
During the 2 day conference, learn about the latest trends and developments in technology, safety, track maintenance and infrastructure construction in the rail industry.
If you can’t physically attend, then a streaming format is available.
CORE2021 is organised by the Railway Technical Society of Australasia (RTSA).
The PANDA probe is giving us and the construction team very useful insight with immediate feedback on the compaction being achieved on a major new rail construction project in QLD. We have two teams working daily using PANDA DCP’s and the Automatic Hammer on the rail formation, enabling real time decision making with confidence, based on the highly repeatable results.
We have found the PANDA to be an invaluable acquisition to our company, using it on projects ranging from Remote Community Housing in Central Australia to a NASA Rocket Launch Facility in Arnhem Land, NT.
I must confess that this equipment is fantastic compared to the old technology.
We see a huge opportunity for business to balance profits for shareholders with the well-being of people and the planet and we are actively encouraging our client base to think in a similar way. The global B Corp community is made up of companies building an economy that is not only sustainable but also inclusive […]
The AGS Queensland Annual Symposium was held on 29 Nov 2022 in Brisbane. Our exhibition stand was manned by Robin Power who had conversations with many of the 160 attendees. Recent advance in geotechnical engineering, engineering geology, and testing was the theme for the Australian Geomechanics Society (AGS) Queensland Chapter Symposium. The program included:
Engineers appear to be fixated on soil bearing capacity as the fundamental soil parameter for foundation design worldwide, with the assumption that the footing will behave as a rigid body. This assumption is usually not applicable for large and multi-column foundations, and in such conditions, engineers prefer flexible analysis using numerous available software. These computer […]
