Equipment | Materials Testing Institute (MTI)
Used for testing the quality of hardened concrete in a structure.
Measures consistency of fresh concrete
Used to prepare concrete cylinders for testing.
Measures consistency of fresh concrete.
Provides information about workability of concrete.
Assesses the consistency of fresh concrete
Measure the greatest bending stress up to the rupture of the sample.
Determines stress/ strain-relations for hardened concrete.
Allows calculation of Young’s modulus.
Determines air content in fresh concrete.
Allows to evaluate the durability of hardened concrete (steel corrosion in coastal areas).
Determines the compressive strength of concrete
Determines load-bearing capacity of roads by measuring deflection caused by a wheel load of 5 tons.
Allows to prognosticate the service life of road pavements by repeated measurements in periods of time.
Serves as alternative to Falling Weight
Test is carried out to classify bitumen
Determines the softening point of bituminous materials. Softening point is that temperature at which the specimen under test becomes soft enough to allow a steel ball of specific dimensions to fall a required distance under test conditions.
Equipment is used to measure stability and flow of Marshall specimen.
Specimen are produced to be tested in the Marshall Test equipment.
Determination of cohesive particles in fine aggregate.
Determines limit value that must be observed to prevent damage to concrete.
Provides information about percentage of grains with unfavorable shape (breaking under loading).
Used to characterize toughness and abrasion resistance of course aggregates.
Measures the soil strength attributes of penetrability and compaction.
Provides an indirect method to determine compaction degree.
Measures bearing capacity of unbound material.
Determines field density by measuring volume of excavated unbound material.
The test is performed for the determination of bearing capacity of soils for allowable settlement under static loads at shallow foundation.
Determines fine particles in granular soils and fine aggregate which may damage concrete and asphalt.
Measures bearing capacity of soils by determining
CBR-value for pavement design. Evaluates influence of water ingress (rainfall).
Determines degree of compaction in combination with Balloon Density apparatus.
compactability of unbound material.
Determines the Coefficient of Permeability of sand by constant head method.
Determines the Coefficient of Permeability of clay by falling head method.
Allows to evaluate water flow in sub grade
Allows to calculate resistance to hydraulic shear failure in building construction
Determines the consolidated-drained shear strength of sandy to silty soils.
oedometer test, also referred to as consolidation test or one-dimensional compression test is a laboratory test that allows characterising the soil stress-strain behaviour during one-dimensional compression of swelling
Highly sophisticated equipment.
Determines cohesion and friction angle for earth static calculations (e.g.stability of excavations and slopes, permissible angle to prevent earth slides, permissible loading of subgrade by buildings).
Determination of the plasticity index (PI)
Determination of Particle Size Distribution
