Studio Prof. Marchetti's Seismic Dilatometer (SDMT) Monolithic Blade Set contains all the necessary components for dilatometer and seismic dilatometer testing (S-wave) down to over 50m of soil depth. The equipment includes:
  • Two blades
  • One true interval seismic probe connected monolithically to a dummy cone tip
  • Control Unit for automatic logging of DMT readings and for seismic data acquisition (latest edition)
  • Pneumatic-electric cables
  • Membranes
  • Calibration equipment
  • Seismic shear beam for S-wave generation
  • Auxiliary components, adaptors and software
  • Adequate set of spare parts for rapid replacement in case of damage and/or wear
  • Training in Rome included

The Flat Dilatometer (DMT) is an in situ test for the determination of various key soil parameters used for geotechnical design. The test is rapid, accurate, simple and cost-effective. The results are highly repeatable and independent from the operator. The blade may be advanced with most common field machines, including penetrometers and drill rigs. ... MoreDMT measurements are performed in situ, directly on the soil in its original position and state. This eliminates the disturbance caused by drilling, sampling and transport to laboratory. The profiles of the results are available real time during test execution. The direct measurement of soil deformation enables accurate estimations of the elastic modulus. The KD parameter provides stress history information of the soil, a very difficult property to estimate with other testing methods.
