Description

This test determines the rate and magnitude of consolidation of a soil specimen restrained laterally and subjected to a number of successive increments of vertical loads.
The oedometer consists of a rigid aluminium alloy frame to avoid any distortion under load. The lever arm assembly is supported in precision self- aligning bearings and has three hanger positions for 9:1, 10:1 and 11:1 ratio. The oedometers fit with linear potentiometric transducers, can be connected to Data acquisition unit.
The consolidation test can also be automatically performed with the  Automatic Computerized oEdometer.

Analog configiration is composed by:

  • Oedometer 
  • Banch  (see accessories)
  • Consolidation cells (see accessories)
  • Dial gauge (see related products)
  • Weights (see accessoreis) 

Digital configiration is composed by:

  • Oedometer 
  • Banch 
  • Consolidation cells (see asccessories)
  • Dispacement trasducer (see related products)
  • Data acqusiton (see related products)
  • Weights (see accessories)
