California Bearing Ratio Test The California Bearing Ratio test, (usually called CBR test) is an empirical test developed in California, USA for determining the Relative Bearing Ratio & expansion characteristics under known surcharge weight of base, sub-base and sub grade soils for the design of roads, payments & runways. The CBR test is used extensively in selection of materials & control of subgrades. The test can be performed in the laboratory on prepared samples or in-situ on location. It is important to appreciate that this test, being of an empirical in nature, is valid only for the application for which it was developed i.e., the design of highway base thickness.


Features of California Bearing Test Salient Features of California Bearing Ratio are:  Compact, bench top design  Rapid Platen Adjustment  Complete with stabilizing bar  Options for mechanical or electrical measurement  Suitable for operation on 220V, 50Hz, single phase, AC supply


California Bearing Ratio Test Apparatus This apparatus, mounted on a rolled steel joist cantilevered from the back of the truck or fitted to the underside of a mobile frame, can be used to determine the bearing ratio (generally known as the California Bearing ratio) of soils quickly and efficiently for the evaluation of strengths of sub-grade & bases for roads & runway pavements. This method of testing in-situ, using piston penetration, is useful for determining the load carrying capacity in the field, when the in-place density and water contents are such that the degree of saturation is 80% or greater, when the material is coarse grained and cohesion less so that it is not affected by changes in the water content when the material has been in-place.
