Flat Dilatometer test consists in advancing a blade into the ground with any common field machine. At each test depth, a circular steel membrane located on one side of the blade is expanded horizontally against the soil. The pressure readings are recorded at specific moments during the membrane expansion. The blade is advanced to the next test depth, typically with 0.20 m depth interval.

The seismic dilatometer is an add-on module that may be combined with the dilatometer or with the CPT for measuring the shear wave velocity Vs (SDMT) and optionally compression wave velocity Vp (SPDMT).” The supplied software is user-friendly and provides shear wave velocity results real time during test execution.

medusa compositionThe Medusa DMT is a probe able to autonomously perform dilatometer tests, which generates and measures the pressure directly at depth. The obtained DMT readings are extremely accurate and repeatable, because the fluid is liquid (incompressible) and the pressure regulation is electronically controlled. New test procedures are possible, such as high resolution dissipation tests and horizontal pressure measurements during continuous penetration.

The Seafloor DMT is a penetrometer for advancing the DMT, the SDMT and the Medusa DMT with multiple short length strokes (0.10 m or 0.20 m). It is very cost-effective compared to competitive devices because it does not require to advance the probe at a specific speed (2 cm/s for CPT). A first prototype was built and tested, but the system is still at a development stage.

In-house developed software is required for data acquisition and for managing the results of the tests. Additional software is available for specific geotechnical applications using the output parameters of the test measurements.

Our services allow your company to try our products without the purchase commitment, rent our 22 tons penetrometer for carrying out the DMT/SDMT test and count on a technical advise if you need a review of test results.

About Us

Studio Prof. Marchetti S.r.l. is the manufacturing company of the Marchetti Flat Dilatometer (DMT), the Seismic Dilatometer (SDMT) and other innovative equipment for onshore, nearshore and offshore soil investigation. We operate on an international basis and have our head office in Rome (Italy). In some countries, we make use of local distributors, while for other countries we have a direct distribution relationship with clients. 

 

The main activity of Studio Prof. Marchetti is to design and supply advanced equipment for worldwide on and offshore soil investigation. The Research and Development department is constantly at work to ensure the most advanced technology, while the marketing specialists are at customer’s disposal for any request of assistance or special need. The company’s aim is to continue to be a reliable reference point for the clients, by basing its relationship on trust and seriousness.
