Lightweight dynamic penetrometer PANDA® & PANDITO®

www.sol-solution.fr

SOL-SOLUTION PANDA® y PANDITO®are lightweight dynamic penetrometers with a continuous data recording and a specific software for interpretation and analysis. This equipment was created in France in 1992, where it is widely used and has replaced the Gamma densitometer method for monitoring material compaction. This method has its own French Standard NF P 94-105.

Its main applications are:

» Monitoring compaction of fills in earthworks, trenches: It can recognize multiple layers in a single measurement and analyze the compaction degree by specific reference Proctor test curves for each material.

» Investigation of soils up to 4 meters deep: Determination of resistance to penetration and bearing capacity of the tested terrain.


Light Drop-Weight Deflectometer ZFG 3.0

www.zorn-online.de

Light drop-weight deflectometer with total automatic measurement of dynamic modulus Evd (which has an equivalence with static modulus EV2). Measurement supplement of 'in situ' CBR and Lab. CBR

It has been used in Germany for 35 years and has been spread worldwide with thousands of units sold, coming to replace the old plate bearing test because of its speed, lightness and reliability. This method has its own German and Spanish Standard 103807-2:2008 UNE. Its main applications and features are:

» Quality control: sub grades for roads and railway platforms.

» Easy handling, no additional load vehicle is necessary, one man handling, multiple tests in a short time, immediate evaluation (indication of the dynamic forming module on the display, print out of one or more test records directly at the building site).


SOLGEO Borehole Geophysical Equipment and Dynamic Monitoring

www.solgeo.it

Portable Thermal Resistivimeter Thermtest TLS-100

www.thermtest.com

Portable thermal conductivity meter for soil thermal conductivity testing as well as rock, concrete, and polymers. Tests can be performed with the push of a button. The collected data is automatically analyzed and results are displayed immediately.

The Transient Line Source (TLS) follows ASTM D5334. The sensor needle consists of a thin heating wire and temperature sensor sealed in a 100 or 50 mm steel tube. The sensor is completely inserted into the sample to be tested. Heat is delivered to the sample using a constant current source (q) and the temperature rise is recorded over a defined period of time.

» Soil thermal conductivity testing + rocks, concrete, polymers, and viscous liquids.

» Easy handling. Portable.

» Follows international standards: ASTM D5334, ASTM D5930, & IEEE 442-1981.

» Standard 100 mm sensor for soft materials.

» Optional 50 mm sensor for hard materials.

The electronic plate bearing tester AX 01

www.anix.biz

Distribution of the electronic plate bearing tester AX 01 from the German Company, The electronic plate bearing tester AX 01 allows to determine(according to several European and American standards).

With its waterproof case, outside lying buttons and an illuminated display the electronic device can also be used under bad environmental circumstances.Test certificates can already be printed at the building site.The results of the inspection can be saved on an SD-card for further treatment on the PC.

» The bearing capacity and the deformability of soils very easily.

» By applying and releasing the load on the soil repetitively the load-settlement curve.

» The strain modules Ev1 and Ev2.

» The modulus of sub grade reaction

Settlement line control equipment

www.consoil.se

The settlement line control equipment is manufactured by the Swedish company CONSOIL

Applications: settlement ground control, directional drillings and underground pipes situation.The main advantages are that is simple, economic and fast installation of previous elements. Land leveling not required as other methods.

» Auxiliary elements are situated underground, so data acquisition is not influenced by site scheduling.

» Simple, flexible and fast data acquisition after making a short course on site.

» Rapidez, flexibilidad y sencillez en la toma de datos, que puede realizarse tras un sencillo curso en obra.

» Reliable and precise data acquisition, with and accuracy lower than 5 mm.
