Featured Projects

Air National Guard

Aircraft Ramp Repair Materials Testing – Klamath Falls, OR
Adkins has performed materials testing for numerous projects at Kingsley Field, including numerous Aircraft Ramp Repairs where we performed laboratory tests of sand and aggregate base rock for field compaction testing, compaction testing of sand and aggregate base rock under concrete panels, and concrete testing of 70 concrete aircraft ramp panels consisting of slump and air content.

Air National Guard

South Arm-Disarm Apron Extension Materials Testing – Klamath Falls, OR
Adkins provided materials testing services for the South Arm-Disarm Apron for F-15 Eagles at Kingsley Field in Klamath Falls. Specifically, we completed laboratory tests of soil subgrade and aggregate base rock for field compaction, compaction testing of soil subgrade, permeable sub-base and aggregate base rock, and concrete testing of 60 concrete aircraft ramp panels consisting of slump and air content.

Air National Guard

Squadron Operations Building 243 Materials Testing – Klamath Falls, OR
Adkins recently completed materials testing for the addition to the Fighter Squadron Operations Building. Testing included laboratory tests of aggregate base rock for field density testing, compaction testing of aggregate base rock under building addition footings, and concrete testing of building addition concrete slabs consisting of slump and air content.

Air National Guard

Parking Lots & Roadways Materials Testing – Klamath Falls, OR
Adkins supported Kingsley Field by performing compaction testing of aggregate base rock under the Building 223 Parking Lot asphalt. We also conducted concrete testing of curbs. Tests consisted of slump, air content, and compressive strength as well as hot mix asphalt density testing by nuclear gauge method.

Air National Guard

Aircraft Maintenance Complex Repair Materials Testing – Klamath Falls, OR
Adkins performed numerous materials testing methods in support of the repair project for the F-15 Aircraft Maintenance Complex at Kingsley Field. Specifically, we completed compaction testing of aggregate base rock under both the building’s interior and exterior, concrete testing of both the interior and exterior footings and elevator pit footings, masonry testing of mortar and grout for elevator and walls using the nuclear gauge method content, flexural strength using simple beam with third-point loading method, and flexural strength using simple beam with third-point loading testing under asphalt pavement and concrete panels by nuclear gauge method content, flexural strength using simple beam with third-point loading concrete slabs and sidewalks, and utility trenches by nuclear gauge method and compressive strength of cylinders.
