One Dimensional Consolidation
The One-Dimensional Consolidation test is used to determine the consolidation characteristics of soils of low permeability. Tests are carried out on specimens prepared from undisturbed samples. Data obtained from these tests, together with classification data and a knowledge of the soils loading history, enables estimates to be made of the behaviour of foundations under load
- Fixed ring type
- Integral water reservoir
- Choice of three sample sizes
- BS 1377; EN DD ENV 1997-2; ASTM D2435, D4546; AASHTO T216
The ELE fixed ring consolidation cells are manufactured from corrosion-resistant materials and conform to the requirements of the relevant standards. An integral water reservoir is incorporated in the cell which allows the specimen to be inundated when required. All cells are supplied complete with upper and lower porous disc, pressure pad and cutting (specimen) ring.
