PLATE LOADING TEST FOR CRANE GROUND INVESTIGATION
Plate Bearing Test The Plate Bearing Test (or Plate Loading Test) is an insitu site investigation field test used for determining the ultimate bearing capacity of the ground and the likely settlement under a given load. While site investigations for most projects consider ground conditions at depth, the strength and variability of the near surface ground is critical for the design and operation of working platforms. The Plate Bearing Test is typically used in the design of temporary working structures such as working platforms for piling rigs or pads for crane outriggers. Approximate equivalent CBR values can be derived from the Modulus of sub grade reaction by use of mathematical relationship.
ENERJISA CORP. MAHMUDIYE WIND FARM PLATE LOAD TESTING WORK:
Canakkale City, Ezine Provence, Mahmudiye Village is work area. The plate loading test was carried out at the site to determine the behavior of the ground against the load from the 1000-ton capacity TEREX AC 1000-9 model crane feet to the floor. As a result of the test, the loads coming from the crane’s feet were found to be the settlement amounts on the ground.
