Plate Bearing Test Apparatus


The company introduces itself as one of the major Manufacturers and Suppliers based in India. We offer Plate Bearing Test Apparatus, which is available in various specifications. These Plate Bearing Test Apparatuses are extensively used for soil testing. 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.
