California Bearing Ratio Test Apparatus, Field Type :-
The use of the in-situ CBR apparatus on large road construction projects has increased considerably in recent years. This apparatus, mounted on a rolled steel joist cantilevered from the back of the truck or fitted to the underside of a mobile frame, can be used to determine the bearing capacity of soils quickly and efficiently. This method of testing in-situ, using piston penetration, is useful for determining the load carrying capacity in the field, when the in-place density and water contents are such that the degree of saturation is 80 % or greater, when the material is coarse grained and cohesion less so that it is not affected by changes in the water content and when the material has been in place.
