Direct Simple Shear

VJ Tech has developed a Simple Shear Testing System, used to carry out a direct simple shear test to determine the shear modulus of a soil sample. The sample is contained within confining rings under applied normal load and is sheared along a predefined plane until it is stressed to failure.

Triaxial Testing is used to examine the shear strength of different materials, including soil. It works alongside other testing methods such as Shear Testing and Consolidation Testing to ensure the limits of the material are understood and weaknesses are identified, optimising its performance when supporting a structural frame.
