The California Bearing Ratio (CBR Test) is a penetration test for evaluating the load-bearing capacity of soils used for building roads and other hardened surfaces. The traditional method of for a CBR Test involved penetrating a plunger of fixed diameter into a soil sample using a Load Frame (usually controlled by some mechanical device) with a Load Ring for measuring Vertical Load and the Displacement measured using Mechanical Dial Gauges. This required the laboratory technician to be on hand with a clipboard and datasheet(s) to record the data when required throughout the Test.
