STANDARDS: ASTM D2435, D3877, D4546, AASHTO T216, CEN ISO/TS 17892-5, BS 1377:5
The one-dmensonal consoldat on test of a solsample enables to ascertanthe settlement characterstcover a gven perod of time. Loads are appled wth progressve ncreases and the settlement values are read on a dal gauge.
Tests are carred out on specmens prepared from undsturbed samples. Data obtaned from these tests together with classification data and a knpwledge of soils loading history, enables estimated to be made of the behavior of foundations under load.
The Hgh Pressure ConsoldatonTest Set scomplete wth Front Loadng Oedometer, Bench for 3 Consoldaton Oedometer, Ø50 mm Consoldaton Cell, 10x0,01 mm Analog Dal Gauge and 64 Kg Set of Weghts.
The ASTM Consoldaton Test Set scomplete wth Front LoadngOedometer, Bench for 3 Consoldaton Oedometer, Ø63,5mm Consoldaton Cell, 10x0,01 mm Analog Dal Gauge and 64 Kg Set of Weghts.
The BS/EN ConsoldatonTest Set scomplete wth Front LoadngOedometer, Bench for 3 ConsoldatonOedometer, Ø75 mm Consoldaton Cell, 10x0,01 mm Analog Dal Gauge and 80 Kg Set of Weghts.
The other accessores are optonal.
The Front Loadng Oedometer s rgdly manufactured from alumnumalloy castng to provde a hgh degree of accuracy wth any frame dst ortons under load. The frame sdesgned to load the specmenthrough a l everarm assemblyand one of three alternatve beam ratosas 9:1, 10:1 and 11:1.
The beam is fitted with a counter balance weight and beam support jack. The cell platform will accept the complete range consolidation cells and is fitted with a central spgot to ensure accurate centerng of the cell under the loading.
The fixed ring Consolidation Cells are manufactured from corrosion-resistant materals and conform to the requr ements of the relevant standards. All cells are suppledcomplete wth Upper and Lower Porous Dsc, Pressure Pad and Cuttng (Specmen) Rng. Any Consoldaton Cells are listed below can.
Any Dial Gauges and Set of Weights are listed below can be chosen.
Apparatus for prepare Consolidation Samples and Calibration Disc should be ordered separately.
