Plate Load Test Apparatus
Standard : ASTM D1556
Model No. : PIT-
The Plate Load Test Apparatus is used for the purpose of soil testing. Mainly it is used for estimating 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 plates starts sinking rapidly, it is then the maximum bearing capacity
