Labbie, your Data Retriever
for the Civil Engineering Soils Testing Laboratory!
Does your Lab do the following popular South African Soils
Sieve Analysis to TMH1 Method A1,
Mechanical analysis to TMH1 Method A5,
Hydrometer Analysis to ASTM standard D422,
Atterberg Limits to TMH1 Methods A2, A3, A4 (Liquid Limit, Plasticity Index, Linear Shrinkage),
Maximum Dry Density (MOD) and Optimum Moisture Content (OMC) to TMH1 Method A7,
California Bearing Ratio (CBR) to TMH1 Method A8,
Strength (UCS) and
Classify soils according to:
AASHTO Classification (Group Index),
TRH14 Classification (1985), and/or
COLTO Type of Material (1998).
If you answered yes to several of the above, then Labbie, the Laboratory
Information Management System (LIMS) software program, is what you need for your Civil Engineering Lab!
Labbie has been successfully processing
concrete test cubes for well over a year at two major Gauteng laboratories. We now
on First Release, the additional features for the most popular
and classifications including all those above.
There is also a facility for "Generic" tests, where you describe numeric and
text results for any test on any material, and the program then stores and prints these (it does no calculations on Generic tests).
Labbie Can Help!
Labbie was developed in conjunction with Roadlab of Primrose, Germiston,
and has been running very successfully there and at Civilab in Booysens,
Johannesburg for well over a year.
The proven Labbie handles concrete test
cubes (of any size). We are now in the process of testing the above Civil Engineering
soils tests. If you would like to participate in the test programme,
e-mail us now (soils tests are free of charge at present).

Take a Labbie for a Run!!
Install Labbie directly from this web site and test it
with no obligation. If you decide that Labbie
will save you time and money and make you a star in the eyes of your
customers, apply for a license and carry on running! See
next block directly below
pricing and below that for installation instructions.
Don't want to install just yet? "Stick your toe in the
water" by downloading the Help File
(only 225 KB) and looking through it.
For details of the
click here to go
to the Labbie News page.
You can test Labbie for soils absolutely free of charge at
present. Read the
help, open the forms, receive samples, input and print results, and play with it as much as you
any problems you find. Be aware that the Help does not yet
cover the soils tests.
If you want to enter cube crushing results, you
need to apply for a license: We give you 30 cubes (5 typical
batches) free when you apply for a test license, which lasts a
month. Thereafter you pay R4.00 per cube result that you
enter, purchased in advance. Please
e-mail us for more details.

Note: Labbie Setup methods are complete
except for one thing: The data file. You need to apply for one
by e-mail in order to get up and running:
To do this,
If your Lab prefers to use Spreadsheets:
- Road Indicator or Foundation Indicator:
- Sieve Analysis to TMH1 - Method A1 (a) - Chart of Percent Passing Sieve Size
- Grading Modulus
- Hydrometer Analysis (ASTM - D422) - Percent Passing Sieve Size
- Atterberg Limits to TMH1 - Methods A2, A3, A4 (Liquid Limit, Plasticity Index, Linear Shrinkage)
- Mechanical analysis to TMH1 - Method A5 - Percent of Soil
- Maximum Dry Density (MOD) and Optimum Moisture Content (OMC) - TMH1 - Method A7
- California Bearing Ratio - TMH1 - Method A8
- AASHTO Group Index
- Unified Classification
- COLTO Classification
- TRH14 Classification (1985), and
- Potential Expansiveness
