  • trough length is 40 m;

  • length with an estimated depth of 0.5 m is 30 m;

  • trough width is 5 m;

  • longitudinal slope of entry and exit is 10%;

  • maximum depth of the mud layer (test soil) is 0.5 m.


  • mud-filled trough;

  • a platform for storage and preparation of soil mixtures;
