Plate Load and DCP Testing

Wind Farm – Nr Glasgow

Plate load testing and DCP testing for road pavement design purposes has recently been undertaken on a wind farm site located near to Glasgow. 4no. plate load tests were required to be undertaken on the surface of an existing track and 8no. The reaction load for the plate load tests was provided by a 20tonne tracked excavator. DCP tests were undertaken to 1.00m depth. Shallow trial pits were excavated adjacent to the DCP position to determine the nature of the soil strata tested.

The plate load testing and DCP equipment is owned by The Land Consultancy Ltd and therefore our rates are extremely competitive.

The results obtained were used to calculate equivalent CBR values and these were presented in a short report to the client the next day.
