This test determines the rate and magnitude of consolidation of a soil specimen restrained laterally and subjected to a number of successive increments of vertical loads.
The oedometer consists of a rigid aluminum alloy frame to avoid any distortion under load. The lever arm assembly is supported in precision self- aligning bearings and has three hanger positions for 9:1, 10:1 and 11:1 ratio.
The oedometers fit with linear potentiometric transducers, can be connected to Data acquisition unit.
The consolidation test can also be automatically performed with the Automatic Computerized Oedometer.
Consolidation cells, dial gauge/displacement transducer, weight sets and bench are not included and have to be ordered separately. See accessories.
