As early as 1993 AGS identified the need for a detailed guidance document on laboratory testing, says Richard Thomas, chairman of the AGS working party set up to draft the new guide 'Selection of Geotechnical Soil Laboratory Testing'. British Standards, mainly BS 1377 (1990), provide very detailed procedures for carrying out tests, but give no advice on the scheduling laboratory tests, and geotechnical textbooks on ground investigation typically pay little regard to laboratory testing.
