Plate Bearing Testing

Plate bearing testing allows the vertical deformation properties of the ground to be assessed.

It has a variety of applications, but can be used in foundation and ground floor slab design, crane pad and piling mat design, and for CBR values.

Case Study

Plate Bearing Testing for Wind Turbine, Devon

Ruddlesden geotechnical have recently undertaken plate bearing testing at a number of farms in Cornwall to validate geotechnical parameters, provided as part of a previous geotechnical investigation, used in the design of the wind turbine.
