Building calls for testing! In Valletta, the capital of Malta, this is done with the HMP PDG Static Plate Load Tester. Thanks for the photo Keith!
NORWAY - Using HMP LFG to assess sustainable pavements built with use of local materials
Diego Maria Barbieri and Jan Erik Molde
NTNU, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Trondheim, Norway
The “Ferry-free coastal highway route E39” project entails the creation of several long tunnels along the southern Norwegian coast. The tunnelling operations will generate a tremendous quantity of blasted rocks. These could be used in the road unbound layers close to the place of production to provide a sustainable cost-benefit application.
Two different non-traditional additive types are examined to improve the properties of weak rocks: one is polymer-based, the other one is lignin-based. A current investigation is assessing the additives’ performances in a full-size field test situated close to Trondheim, Norway. The Light Weight Deflecttometer HMP LFG is being used to assess the development of dynamic modulus and deformation over time.
HMP PDGpro - quality assurance during construction of Copenhagen metro, DENMARK
The Static Plate Load Tester HMP PDGpro is currently being used in track construction in Copenhagen. The company "DMR Geotechnik" relies on precise testing technology from Magdeburg!
In the first three construction phases, among other things the airport and the city development area Ørestad on the island Amager were connected to the city centre of Copenhagen. By means of this city ring the accessibility of the city centre by public transport shall now be increased.
GREAT BRITAIN - Measurement of bearing capacity under the roadway by means of the HMP LFGpro
This really also surprised us! We received this picture from an end user in Great Britain.
In this case a hole was cut into the roadway, in order to measure the bearing capacity of the base layer below the already built-in asphalt pavement by means of the Light Weight Deflectometer HMP LFGpro.
Both hands free in SERBIA - with the HMP LFG!
You want to check the compression on many measuring points on after another? Then do it like one of our users in Serbia:
With the settlement measuring instrument on his wrist he has both hands free to do the measurement and then to go with his Light Weight Deflectometer to the next measurement point.
UKRAINIAN Railways trust on HMP!
Our Light Weight Deflectometer has been of fundamental importance for the trouble-free train operations in the host country of the European Championship 2012. The Ukrainian southern railway has planned the expansion of the transport corridor on time. For the first time a 13-ton virbation roller and a HMP LFGpro for internal quality assurance & fast review of achieved compaction were used. Several rail sections were reconstructed, straightened and newly filled. The result speaks for itself - the new Express-Railway sections were completed one month earlier than planned!
