Used to estimate the bearing capacity of a soil under field loading conditions on flexible pavement components .
The relatively lightweight (68 kg in total) and small dimensions of the apparatus make it very easy to use and to move from one place to another. The measuring bridge made from aluminium alloy, is very light and has telescopic extensions so It can be positioned in a few minutes with minimum effort. The remote load control and gauge are mounted on the pump and it is not necessary to go near the platen for recording the load. The deformations are measured with three dial indicators.
