Test the performance accuracy and reliability of control systems and associated instruments and servo-mechanisms, included in the works. Test structural, mechanical or pressure resisting strength of Plant, piping systems, structures or other parts of the works. Test the properties of materials to be incorporated in the works for corrosion resistance, brittleness, flexibility, aesthetics, durability and strength. Measure movement and settlement and soil characteristics in earthworks. Check setting out, line, level and verticality.
