Consolidation Apparatus (Single Gang)
The consolidation test apparatus is a uni-dimensional test considered extremely important in soil mechanics. The sample was taken from adjacent areas of a single site show differential settlement even when tested using the same techniques.
This Apparatus is Having a loading yoke connected to a lever arm with a counterbalancing adjustment and having a lever ratio of 1:1 the whole assembly being mounted on a sturdy steel frame stand. The loading unit is so designed that it can be used for consolidation cells of different diameters as well as different dia floating ring type consolidation cells. Fixed ring type Consolidometer (Odometer) cell assembly for testing 60mm dia x 20mm thick specimen comprising: Fixed ring for specimens 60mm dia x 20mm thick with guide ring. Top and bottom porous stones for 60mm dia specimen.
