FIELD: construction.

SUBSTANCE: in method samples of soil are picked, density and humidity are determined in natural condition, as well as density of soil particles, overburden pressure at the depth of sample picking and preconsolidation pressure. Additionally humidity is determined at liquid limit, as well as size composition, content and density of particles of fine, with size of less than 2 mm, and coarse, with size of more than 2 mm, fractions, steady-state density of sample. Balance pressure for overburden density of picked soil sample is defined according to the formula: coefficient of repacking is determined by ratio of picked sample density and balance density for overburden pressure: coefficient of tension by ratio of balance and overburden pressures: and then, having obtained values of these coefficients, extent of sample repacking is defined.

EFFECT: increased efficiency and accuracy, reduced labour intensiveness and duration of balance pressure determination, wider interval of pressure values and preconsolidation properties.

FIELD: mechanical engineering; testing facilities.

SUBSTANCE: invention can be used for stand tests of pumps of any application. According to proposed method full pressure at pump input is maintained constant by means of reservoir with free surface of liquid exposed to constant (atmospheric) pressure installed in intake pipeline. Working liquid saturated vapor pressure at pump input is changed by heating. Periodical measurement of required parameters in process of liquid heating makes it possible to calculate sought for cavitation margin Δh. Method is implemented by test stand containing pump to be tested, output throttle, flow meter, heat exchanger, service tank, pipe fittings, all arranged in closed hydraulic circuit, and reservoir with free surface of working liquid in combination with capsule made of heat conducting material connected to circuit at pump input. Space of capsule is divided into two parts, one of which is partly filled with working liquid and sealed, and other communicates with circuit.
