Consolidation Apparatus Testing Equipments
Consolidation of clay deposit leads to distress in buildings such as cracks and failures. Consolidation is reduction of volume of soil due to expulsion of water from its pore space caused by sustained loading. This phenomenon is time dependent.
The one dimensional consolidation test performed on an undisturbed sample of clay is useful for understanding the history of the soil deposit.
The test results can be used for calculating the settlement of structures built on clayey soil.
Consolidation Apparatus, Single Gang, Automatic with Touch Screen (Without analysis software) (AIM-127-4-T )
The Automatic Consolidation Apparatus eliminates the use of the traditional hanging weight system. It is a compact, table top system with low power consumption and highly accurate output of results.
The instrument minimises the human factor/error associated with the conventional testing method. The Instrument perform the test as per ASTM.
