Plate Bearing Test
This is for estimating the bearing capacity of shallow foundations in situ and for the design of flexible pavement. In the test procedure a steel plate is subjected to gradually increasing load and settlements of the plates recorded. Maximum bearing capacity is noted as that load at which the plate starts sinking rapidly. Specifications: the basic outfit consists of : 50 tonne hydraulic jack with separate pumping unit fixed to it a 0-500 KN. X 0. 5 KN. Pressure gauge and flexible metal pipe 5mtr. long - 1 no. Special ball and socket arrangement between the jack and the bearing plate - 1 no. Extension rod 12MM. dia x 25cm long for taking dial gauge readings - 16 nos. Magnetic base with female thread on top for holding extension rod - 4 nos. Top end plate, 50mm, dia with male thread for fitting onto the extension rods and positioning the dial gauge plunger - 4 nos. Column 15cm dia x 25cm long with flanges complete with four bolts and nuts - 2 nos. Column 15cm x 50cm long with flanges complete with four bolts and nuts - 1 nos.
