Plate Bearing Test

Model No.: SET-1248

IS 1888 1962 ASTM D 1194 BS 13779

Civil Lab Equipment Manufacturers introduces itself as one of the leading manufacturers and providers of Plate Bearing Test equipment based in India. We make available the Plate Bearing Test Apparatus in diverse specifications as per the requirement of our clients. ThePlate Bearing Test equipment is used for the purpose of soil testing. Mainly it is used for estimating the bearing capacity of the shallow foundations for ensuring proper designing of the flexible pavement. During the test process a steel plate is goes through the increasing load along with the settlements of the recorded plates. One the load wherein the plate starts sinking rapidly, it is then the maximum bearing capacity is noted.

Key Features
  • Helps in determining of the bearing capacity of the in-situ soil
  • Designing for the static loads on the spread footings
  • Repetitive as well as non-repetitive plate loading tests of soils along with the flexible pavements
