Plate Loading Test

This test method is used to estimate the bearing capacity of a soil under field loading conditions for a specific loading plate and depth of embedment (ASTM D1194). It is also used for load tests of soil and flexible pavement components for use in evaluation and design of airport and highway pavements.

TS-1200 Plate Loading Test Set consists of a 200 kN capacity piston assembly and hydraulic hand pump, pressure transducer, LPI battery operated digital readout unit, 2.4 m long datum bar, 3 pcs. 25 mm travel x 0.01 mm digital dial gauges with dial supports, 300 mm and 450 mm dia. loading plates.
