PLATE BEARING TEST APPARATUS
Advanced Technocracy Inc. is Manufacturer, Exporter & Supplier of PLATE BEARING TEST APPARATUS.
We are engaged in manufacturing and supplying Plate Bearing Test Apparatus, which is used for estimating the bearing capacity of shallow foundations in situ and for the design of flexible pavement. This test is a standard technique fro determining bearing capacity of soils and is used in agriculture, defense, education, geophysical/ seismology, irrigation and mining industry.
Dynamic Cone Penetrometer (DCP) It is used for rapid in-situ measurement of the structural properties of existing road pavement constructed with unbound materials.The unit incorporates an 8 Kg weight having a drop of 575 mm, fitted to end of the shaft is a 20 mm diameter cone. With the standard DCP measurements can be made down to a depth of approximately 850 mm.Reading are taken after a set number of blows, changing the number according to the strength of layer being penetrated. For good granular bases,readings every 5-10 blows are satisfactory, but for weaker sub-base layers and sub grades, readings every 1-2 blows may be appropriate.
