Pressuremeter/Deformation Modulus Apparatus (AIM 141-147)
Conventional methods, like Standard Penetration Test, Static Cone Test, Dynamic Cone Test, etc. are well established and do reflect the maximum strength of a given layer of soil, but they give no idea of stress deformation behaviour of the concerned layer. Pressuremeter test fills this void.
The pressuremeter is an instrument for “in-situ” measurements of soil load / deformation parameters.
An efficient and economical tool for the evaluation of most ground engineering problems and in particular :
bearing capacity of shallow and deep foundations, piles or caissons
settlement calculations of all foundations
determination of earth pressures on retaining structures
behaviour of laterally loaded piles
