DIDAC Export offer an optimum quality of Bench For Three Oedometers. Bench holding three apparatuses. The main purpose of consolidation tests is to obtain soil data which is used in predicting the rate and amount of settlement of structures founded on clay.
Place sample in ring
Measure height change
Repeat for new load
The oedometer test is used to investigate the 1-D consolidation behaviour of fine-grained soils.
An undisturbed soil sample 20 mm in height and 75 mm in diameter is confined in a steel confining ring and immersed in a water bath.
It is subjected to a compressive stress by applying a vertical load, which is assumed to act uniformly over the area of the soil sample.
