Abesim recently acquired a device for dynamic plate tests.This test makes it possible to evaluate the level of densification of an embankment in progress.It can also be used to control the existing foundation layer, typically used in a roadway context.
This test is what the dynamic penetration test is to the static penetration test. There are also correspondences which make it possible to translate the dynamic deformation module Evd measured via the light dynamic plate into a module Ev2 obtained via the static plate.
The advantage of dynamic testing is its speed of implementation and the fact that a counterweight is not necessary. This makes it possible to carry out a large number of tests on the same embankment and thus have a more statistical approach compared to the static test for which it is ordinarily limited to a few tests on the same site.
