STANDARDS: ASTM E 2835-11 | TP BF-StB part B 8.3 | ZTV E-StB 2017 | RIL 836 | RVS 08.03.04 (Austria)
Used in earthwork and road construction to determine the soil bearing capacity and the compaction quality of soils and non cohesive subbases,
as well as for soil improvement applications. The test method is suited for coarse-grain and mixed-grain soil having maximum grain size of 63
mm. The test method may be used to determine the dynamic modulus of deformation of soil in the range Evd = 15…70 MN/m².
ADVANTAGES over the static plate load tester:
– Immediate evaluation of each measurement
– Only 2 minutes per measurement point
– Time and cost-saving
– No need for construction plant as kentledge
– Easy to handle by one person
– Ability to test in inaccessible locations
Being easy to handle and providing immediate measuring results,
the Light Weight Deflectometer is additionally suited for monitoring
intra-company operations. It facilitates quick decisions for continuing
construction work at the site.

– Intuitive menu navigation with 10 selectable languages
– Variable text input and pre-loading pulses
– Three settlement values shown during test
– Settlement mean value and Evd modulus automatically calculated
– Drop weight: 10 kg (extendable to 15 kg)
– Measure range: Evd 15-70 MN/m² (extendable to 105 MN/m²)
