UTS-0330Utest Software for Consolidation Test
  • The UTS-0300 Front Loading Oedometer is rigidly constructed to ensure minimum frame distortion.
  • The frame is designed to load the specimen through a lever arm assembly and one of three alternative beam ratios as 9:1, 10:1 and 11:1.
  • The beam is fitted with a counter balance weight and beam support jack.
  • The cell platform will accept the complete range UTEST consolidation cells and is fitted with a central spigot to ensure accurate centring of the cell under the loading.
  • The UTEST fixed ring consolidation cells are manufactured from corrosion-resistant materials and conform to the requirements of the relevant standards.
  • An integral water reservoir is incorporated in the cell which allows the specimen to be inundated when required.
  • All cells are supplied complete with upper and lower porous disc, pressure pad and cutting (specimen) ring.
  • The One-dimensional Consolidation test is used to determine the consolidation characteristics of soils of low permeability.
  • Tests are carried out on specimens prepared from undisturbed samples.
  • Data obtained from these tests together with classification data and a knowledge of the soils loading history, enables estimates to be made of the behaviour of foundations under load.
  • Consolidation cell, dial gauge or displacement transducer and data logger, bench, weights, apparatuses for prepare Consolidation samples and calibration disc should be ordered separately.
Data Acquisition & PC Software:
  • 4 or 8 channel interface units (UTCU-0320 or UTCU-0325) are used for recording displacement data over time.
  • High resolution: 260.000 points.
  • Serial port for PC and printer connection.
  • CPU card by microprocessor 32-bit ARM risk architecture.
  • 4 or 8 analogical channels for displacement transducers.
  • Utest Consolidation Software (USOFT-0300) is developed according to ASTM D2435, D3877, D4546, BS 1377:5 and AASHTO T216 standards to be used with UTCU-0320 and UTCU-0325.
  • Displacement transducers are connected to interface unit and interface unit is connected to PC by RS232 serial output.
  • The software is capable monitoring the change of displacement data over time.
  • User can initiate and end data recording process by using the software.
  • The user can determine and assign different time intervals (or select fixed time intervals) and stresses for the calculation of the consolidation test data.
  • The consolidation software has different data recording columns each assigned to the consolidation cells and they can be set to different normal load (stress) values.
  • The user can also manually enter the vertical displacement data to these columns for correction.
  • The graphs of time-displacement pairs are drawn in both square-root time and logarithmic time scales.
  • In addition to these visualizations, the software can calculate required parameters such as √t90, √t50, √t100, mv, Cv, etc. according to the related standards indicated above.
  • Recorded data, graphs, calculations and all other generic data can be exported to Microsoft Excel for further evaluation.
  • Customizable User Interface
  • Graphical outputs and reports can be saved as MS Excel worksheet
  • Flexibility in edit report and graph templates
