Accredited Compaction Test according to ASTM E2835-11 Quotation from ASTM E2835-11: “Deflections may be either correlated directly to pavement performance or used to determine in-situ material characteristics of the pavement foundation layers.“ Provide evidence of compaction quickly and efficently. Within two minutes you can determine the quality of compaction. Correct handling GPS Hexangular weight-catching grip: comfortable catching of the drop weight during testing. and for structural evaluation of load carrying capacity. in order to conduct compaction work cost-effectively and profitably. Some uses of the data include quality control and quality assurance of compacted layers. Every day thousands of civil engineering companies count on the advantages of this handy and precise “Do It Yourself Compaction Test“. even in areas that are difficult to access. easier carrying on construction site.

This ensures that one can perform precise tests and easily operate the device in a professional manner. At the same time the measured data is saved on a chip card for later management on your PC. During development and con- struction we paid attention to faulty measurements and made them practically impossible through an internal plausibilty check. automati- cally checks the sensor connection. the display shows the settlement in mm as well as the corresponding settlement curve. you can transfer all data to your PC in no time and start the evaluation process. The well-arranged control panel of the electronic system makes testing on construction sites with TERRATEST 3000 GPS effective. quick und inexpensive. The sequence of the measuring process below shows the userfriendly execution of the test. thanks to the integrated mini-printer. one is automatically directed to the measuring menu and will be asked to start with a first pre-load. which can be printed immediately on the construction site.

For saving important additional information regarding the construction site. intuitive menu guidance: it is impossible to make the operation of the Light Weight Deflectometer easier. the integrated mini-printer allows you to print the measured data immediately and on the spot.Complete Equipment Printer – Chip Card for Test Saving – GPS System – Software To be able to document testing results directly at the construction site. the maximum settlements with the settlement speed as well as the GPS coordinates will be shown. like altitude or type of soil. All tests are saved automatically on a chip card. settlement curves as well as the three individual settlements. The protocol print-out shows GPS coordinates. Well-arranged front plate. simply insert the card and the data can be transferred to the PC immediately. Later. every test can be printed as an A4-sized record from your PC.

And so that the card doesn’t get lost on the construction site. 12 . the device is also equipped with a text input function. we have willfully chosen a chip card in the size of a credit card.
You can create individual data records as well as a statistical analysis of the entire testing area as specified in ASTM E2835-11. Every test is shown in an individual A4-sized data record. therefore you don’t need to pay the fees for commercial use of Google® Earth.08. individual tests can be accurately allocated to particular locations. Thus.User-friendly Software with integrated Google® Earth Interface While testing. date and time. so that measurements can also be directly uploaded to CAD-plans.7 MN/m2 (30. At the touch of a button the measurement can later be shown on your PC in a Google® Earth satellite picture with the measured value. the TERRATEST-GPS-System determines and saves the coordinates of the particular testing point (when GPS is turned on). The analysis of the testing results can easily be performed with the TERRATEST software. However. In this way all. since our software is already linked to Google® Earth. The GPS coordinates will automatically be converted in Gauss-Krüger coordinates. TERRATEST has concluded a contract of use with Google®. there is no need to install Google® Earth on your PC. testing results are analyzed and archived automatically and necessary selfmonitoring is achieved.

Consider only the four results which show parameters close to each other. Afterwards. The correlation procedure should be performed by contractor and client. as long as the foundation soil remains the same. so that they can collectively agree on using the Light Weight Deflectometer as their standard test method. carry out eight dynamic plate load tests.

During the entire testing procedure.Brillant Testing without Carrying CARRELLO . The measurement electronics remain connected to the load plate during the entire testing process and can be operated conveniently at waist level. For testing. After testing. carry and rewire the device for each test. In this way. The guide rod of the loading device is locked and fixed. your TERRATEST 3000 GPS remains constantly ready to use. To do so. the load plate will simply be placed on the ground without having to lift.the mobile testing system “CARRELLO“ was designed for comfortable testing on the construction site. The apparatus enables easy handling of your TERRATEST 3000 GPS without having to carry it across the construction site. the complete m e c h a nism is hooked up under the angled handles of the load plate and hauled across the construction site. the mechanism is hooked up under the angled handles of the load plate again and hauled comfortably to the next testing point. Like that. even across long distances. Its handling will be easy and comfortable. the Light Weight Deflectometer becomes a real light Weight Deflectometer. the electronics remain conneted and attached to CARRELLO. An application has been filed to register its design as an EU Community design. 16 Made in Germany .
