LBR Load & Displacement Measurement

Gilson’s LBR Component Sets configure Gilson’s or other manufacturer’s Load Frames for Limerock Bearing Ratio (LBR) testing to meet Florida FM-5-515 requirements, and many are also used for California Bearing Ratio (CBR) testing. Set components are also available separately.

  • CBR Component Sets include the choice of analog or digital components to perform CBR load and penetration testing. The Digital Set consists of the Penetration Piston, Transducer/Dial Indicator Clamping Arm, 10,000lbf Load Cell, Linear Displacement Transducer, Two-Channel Digital Readout, and software. These products are installed on a Load Frame for CBR testing. consists of a Penetration Piston,6,000lbf or 10,000lbf Load Ring, Transducer/Dial Indicator Clamping Arm, and Dial Indicator to outfit Gilson or other Load Frames for CBR testing.
  • Load & Displacement Readout Kit, 10,000lbf Capacity can adapt select Load Cells and Displacement Transducers to Digital Read-Out Box for use in different testing applications.
  • Digital Display Readout Boxes display electronic measurements on two or four channels from Load Cells and Displacement Transducers.
  • Load Cells electronically measure applied loads from 500lbf up to 20,000lbf.
  • Linear Digital Displacement Transducers measure soil deformation or movement and are available in 1 and 2in ranges.
  • Load Rings range in capacity from 250lbf to 10,000lbf and provide analog force measurements.
  • Digital Dial Indicators are available in different ranges and resolutions to display movement and displacement measurements.
  • Mechanical Dial Indicators are low-friction analog units for accurate displacement readings.
