Plate Bearing Test Apparatus
The Plate Bearing Test is essentially a model test of foundations. It gives the load deformation characteristics for determining the ultimate bearing capacity of foundations. This test is a standard technique for determining bearing capacity of soils and the results of other methods are compared and calibrated with the values obtained from the plate bearing test. In this method, a steel plate is subjected to a gradual increment of load and the corresponding settlement is noted. The ultimate bearing capacity is taken as the load at which the settlement increases at a rapid rate. Features & Benefits Applicable Standards: BS1377; EN 1997-3; ASTM D1194, D1195, D1196 Determination of bearing capacity of the soil in situ Designing for static loads on spread footings Repetitive and non-repetitive plate loading tests of soils and flexible pavement Specifications Loading jack: 500kN capacity with integral ball seating Pump: Hand-operated, single speed with integral oil reservoir Hose: 3m long. Maximum pressure 70MPa with quick release couplings Gage: 100mm diaMETER with quick-release couplings and graphs to convert readings to kN, kgf and lbf Weights: Loading jack 24kg, pressure system 12.5kg Note: The equipment is used in conjunction with a reaction beam. This is not supplied with the equipment.
