Continuous Consolidation Apparatus

Double chamber, for 63.5mm Ø x 25.4 mm high samples

ASTM D4186



To perform continuous consolidation tests.


Product Information


General Description
• Designed to perform continuous consolidation tests in conjunction with a traditional compression machine generally used for triaxial tests
• Double chamber cell, so that two different and independent water pressures can be applied
• Pore pressure measured at the base of the specimen with a pressure transducer
• Drainage connected to the top of the specimen for consolidation
• The apparatus requires a pressure system and data acquisition

• Continuous monitoring of test parameters (axial load, pore pressure, axial compression) and detailed plotting of the consolidation curve
• Relatively short time to perform the test (less than half the time of a traditional consolidation test, incremental loading type)
• More accurate and reliable evaluation of consolidation and compressibility parameters
• Particularly suitable for cohesive saturated soils
