Plate bearing test apparatus
These test methods are used to estimate the bearing capacity of a soil under field loading conditions for a
Specific loading plate and depth of embedment (ASTM D1194) but also for load tests of soil and fl exible pavement components for use in evaluation and design of airport and highway pavements (ASTM D1195, D1196; BS 1377; CNR No. 92 and No. 146; DIN18134). We propose a complete range of plate load testing equipment conforming to the different standards.
The apparatus can be easily converted conforming to method "b" - three dial gauges-removing the housing for centre dial gauge anvil and requiring other two dial gauges 10x0.01 mm with two dial gauge supports.
