  • Software

The HMP LFG PRO portable light drop weight tester also referred to as Light Weight Deflectometer or LWD is a dynamic plate load test  that is used to determine the soil bearing capacity and compaction quality of soils and non-cohesive sub-bases, as well as for soil improvement applications. Built-in soil layers can easily be tested without load abutment, facilitating quick assessments of test lots even under limited space conditions. The test method is suited for coarse-grain and mixed grain soils having a maximum grain size of 63mm and can be used to determine the dynamic modulus of deformation of soil (resilience) in the range Evd = 15...70MN/m2.

The equipment in conformance with the German Technical Test Standard  for Soil and Rock In Road & Railway Construction TP BF-STB Part B 8.3/issue 2003, and conforms to the latest ASTM E2835 standards in relation to use of the equipment for measuring soil compaction quality or directly measure the EVD deformation modulus; The HMP LFG 4  provides  measurements that have direct correlation to static load test (DIN18134, BS1377, ASTM D1194/1195/ 1196) & Procter test (Dpr)*.

The LFG provides measurements that have direct correlation to:
    • Road construction.
    • Railway construction.
    • Earth works.
    • Pipe & canal construction.
    • Examination of foundation fillings.

Provided with GPS for logging test locations, Large 16 line LCD display, Thermal Printer for On Site printing of test results, USB for data tranfer, Software for data analysis and a Trolley Cart to allow easy transportation of equipment at site.

Press (Power) to switch on the settlement measuring instrument.
Perform 3 impacts in succession.
The settlement value in mm is displayed after each impact.
After completion of the test, the average settlement, the deformation modulus, the path to-speed ratio and the settlement curve are calculated.
Settlement curves can be viewed on site itself.

Read in measured data HMP LFGpro – Messgerät

For reading in measured data the following steps has to be carried out:

  • Connect the provided USB cable to a free USB interface of the PC and the settlement measuring instrument.
  • Switch on the settlement measuring instrument.
  • Select and acknowledge the transfer mode “device"
  • PC” (menu "measured data/USB”) in the settlement measuring instrument. The settlement measuring instrument appears in PC as a removable medium
  • Select the register LFGpro reading.
  • Select the appropriate removable medium and press Reading data button. The measured data will be transferred to PC.

 Read in measured data HMP LFGpro – USB stick

For reading in measured data the following steps has to be carried out:

  • Connect the USB stick to a free USB interface of the PC. The USB stick appears on PC as a removable medium. On USB stick the measured data are stored in folders. During each transfer of measured data from settlement measuring instrument to USB stick a new folder will be generated. The name of the folder contains date and time of the transfer time (format MMDDhhmm).
  • Select the register LFGpro reading.
  • Select the appropriate removable medium, open the desired folder and press Reading data button. The measured data will be transferred to PC

.

 

 

Store measured data

When data successful read in, following display is displayed:

 

 

All read in measured data can be stored in one data file by file - save us. It is also possible to store several measured series separate. So the measured series can be assigned to the projects.

For storing several measured series:

  • Mark the measured series of the project.
  • Press the save particular data button.
  • Select the directory, type into the file name (e.g. name of project) and click “OK”.


After opening stored file (file- pen) additional measured series can be stored separate how described above.

For deleting several measurements please mark these measurements and press delete button.
