Geotechnical soil tests in order to achieve the best possible performance of new buildings or rehabilitation of existing buildings occupy one of the leading places in construction. Due to the lack of investigative work, a large number of buildings are exposed to danger. In order not to have bad effects on buildings in the future, it is necessary to minimize ground subsidence. Testing of the compressibility modulus / determination of the compressibility modulus is performed during the construction of roads, railways, buildings, parking lots and embankments, on the foundation soil, replacement layers, bedding and embankment layers and buffer. The purpose of the test is to ensure that, due to insufficiently compacted layers during installation, they do not settle after some time, as well as cracking of the floor in the building, deterioration of part of the building, deterioration of the pavement structure of roads and parking lots (potholes), etc. A circular plate is the name for an instrument used to test the compressibility module of a building's foundation. A dynamic test with a falling weight plate enables simpler and faster testing and immediate results.
