Plate-bearing test for compaction control in road engineering – BRRC information leaflet A26

This operational precedure describes a plate-bearing test for checking the quality of road construction materials after laying (compaction control) or the residual quality of a fatigued road layer.



The Dynaplaque allows rapid checks of the bearing capacity of soils or subgrades with a maximum particle density Dmax smaller than 200 mm.


Quality control of earthworks and (sub)base layers

Both at the European and the global level, exchange and work structures are developing that foster technical progress in earthworks and earthmoving projects. They promote:
- a coordination of practices (establishment of standards institute);
- greater participation in research at the European and global levels;
- the scheduling of conferences for exchanges between professionals.
