The shear apparatus can be equipped with several measurement devices for performing fully automatic shear tests as well as CD test (optional) in compliance with BS or ASTM standard. The soil specimen tests, consolidation as well as shearing can be processed in one preprogrammed single control runoff up to the point of evaluation.
Embodiment: Shear S
The operating software installed for shear trials controls the tests in full automatic mode,records the measurement data generated and calculates and supplies the online graphic.
Even while shear studies are in progress, the system shows the measurement results obtained and the calculations that have been made.
The operating software installed can be selected by mouse click:
Direct shear test Standard
Rresidual shear test (optional)
Wiener - routine - trial (optional)
The shear apparatus is compact and can be installed in a small area; the laboratory technician has a good overview of the progress of the soil trial at all times. (Online graphic).
In combined systems, conversion from one test type to the next can be readily done in just a few minutes.
