AX01 Static Plate Bearing Test
TIC Service Group Pty Ltd
Geotechnical, Pavement, Geotechnical Engineering
The AX01 Plate Bearing Test (or Plate Load Test) from Anix GmbH is used to determine the bearing capacity and the load-deflection relationship (deformability) of soils and sub bases and is designing for measuring static loads on spread footings, and for repetitive plate loading tests of soils and flexible pavements. Our equipment provides immediate repeatable results so that on-site decisions can be made straight away.
The advantages of the AX01 Plate Bearing Test include:
- Short operation time
- Robust and durable
- Simple 4-button user interface
- Electronic evaluation
- Immediate printing on SD card
- Storage of test results
- Data manipulation within MS Excel
- Compact design
This equipment enables the user to determine the Elastic Modulus of the pavement or foundation. The unit is designed according to DIN 18134: 2001-09 and is the simple solution to determine the strain moduli Ev2 and Ev1 (an indicator for the bearing capacity of the soil under the loading plate) and the ratio Ev2/Ev1 (a figure for the compaction level).
The AX01 Plate Bearing Test is normally used to measure the short term settlement of road sub-grade or building footings under their proposed design load. The value of settlement against load is then used to check that the soil meets design load settlement criteria. The test therefore is of use to both contractors and to specifying authorities. In addition to values of settlement, other soil parameters can be measured, or calculated from the plate bearing test. These include Modulus of Sub-Grade Reaction, permanent deformation characteristics of the soil and in some instances shear strength of the soil.
Applications for this non destructive plate bearing test method for measuring bearing capacity and compaction control include flexible pavements, unsealed roads and mine access roads, tunnels, railway track beds, airport runway and taxiways, hard standing areas, dam construction, canal building, building foundations, pipe laying and tank farms.
Clients include those involved in pavement construction, pavement rehabilitation, material testing, geotechnical testing and site investigation and include road authorities, councils, asset managers, mines, engineering and construction groups, subcontractors, geotechnical consultancies and research organisations.
