We will carry out a plate loading test to ascertain bearing capacity and settlement under load or if you wish, give you a calculated CBR value.
The Plate Bearing Test (or Plate Loading Test) is an insitu test used for determining the bearing capacity of the ground and the likely settlement under a given load.
It is essential that any piling mat or crane base foundation is designed such that loads transmitted from either a piling rig or static crane can safely be transmitted without any loss of stability.
Typically a Plate Bearing Test is used to assess the bearing capacity and settlement of working platforms for piling rigs or pads for crane outriggers.
If needed approximate equivalent CBR values can be derived from the Modulus of sub grade reaction by use of mathematical relationship.
