Dilatometric Test (DMT)
The dilatometric test (DMT) is performed by using a dilatometer, which operates on the principle of verification values by using the displacements of the inductive sensors (with a sensitivity of up to 0.001 mm). The advantage of these tests is a more accurate description of displacement and deformation of foundation soil.

The result of dilatometric test is its process plotted as a graph. The evaluation of dilatometric tests (DMT) are used as input parameters for the analyses in the "Spread Footing" program (), "Sheeting Check" and "Anti-Slide Pile" program ( ).
Import of DMT
The results of dilatometric test (DMT) are imported into the program by inserting the file in format UNI (*.uni). It is a standardized and universal format for import of the measured data obtained from dilatometric tests, which is used in the world.
