I have a project that is requiring 3 plate load tests to be performed at depths of 2 feet below existing grades to determine the modulus of subgrade reaction per ASTM D 1196. The project is for a relatively small parking lot, maybe 100' x 100'.
What do you typically use for your reaction force to perform the test? The project is not currently under construction, so I will have to bring in whatever equipment I decide to use.
