Lafayette, Louisiana, August 21, 2014 – C & C Technologies Inc. is pleased to announce that Jill Rivette has joined the Geotechnical Division in Houston TX as a Senior Geotechnical Engineer. Jill is a licensed Professional Engineer in the State of Texas and brings with her many years of experience in geotechnical engineering.
The C & C geotechnical laboratory has been quite active in 2014 performing standard and advanced soil tests on core samples obtained from offshore East Africa, along with several extensive lab testing programs on projects in the Gulf of Mexico.
The lab has purchased three new Direct Simple Shear devices to satisfy this increasing demand, which brings its total number of Direct Simple Shear devices to nine. Two additional Cyclic Simple Shear devices have also been added, expanding the total number of these devices to four. These additional test devices, along with over 40 other highly specialized test devices including Resonant Column, Controlled Rate of Strain Consolidation, and Ko Consolidated Triaxial allow C&C to perform large scale geotechnical lab testing programs often required for deep water site investigations.
