What is Packer Testing?

Packer testing, a critical procedure in geotechnical engineering, is designed to assess the permeability of rock formations and soil. This test involves isolating a section of a borehole using inflatable packers and then measuring the rate at which water or air is absorbed or expelled from the formation. The insights gained from a packer permeability test are crucial for various applications, including:

  • Evaluating the suitability of sites for construction and mining
  • Understanding groundwater flow in hydrogeological studies
  • Determining the stability and safety of underground structures

Recognised as a vital component in geotechnical investigations, packer testing provides indispensable data that surface methods cannot yield.

Why is Packer Testing Important in Geotechnical Engineering?

Packer testing plays a pivotal role in the field of geotechnical engineering. Its value lies in its ability to provide detailed insights into the subsurface conditions of a site. These insights are critical for:

  • Assessing the risk of water ingress in underground constructions
  • Determining the feasibility of projects in terms of water table and soil stability
  • Guiding the design and planning of mining and construction projects

In the realm of hydrogeology, packer testing hydrogeology applications are invaluable for understanding groundwater flow and potential contamination pathways.
