Dynamic (Cyclic) Simple & Direct Shear Apparatus


Dynamic (Cyclic) Simple & Direct Shear Apparatus

Part Number : VJT2840
For prices: call +44 (0)118 945 3737 or Email us
Note: The displayed image shows the basic VJT Product with some additional accessories
The VJ Tech Dynamic (Cyclic) Simple & Direct Shear Apparatus has been designed to perform Dynamic (Cyclic) Shear, Direct/Residual Shear or Direct Simple Shear tests.
The Apparatus incorporates 2 electro-mechanical actuators for Horizontal and Vertical movement (which are controlled from a Dual Axis Dynamic Servo Controller (DSC3000MM) via Ethernet or USB from a PC).
The sample is contained within either a Direct Shear assembly or a Simple Shear assembly (interchangeable) as required. Cyclic controlled tests can be carried out using Sine, Square, Triangular, Haversine, Saw Tooth, Rectangular or User Defined waveforms.
