Consolidation Stage Setup (cont.)
You can specify the Consolidation stage to be stopped when the Pore Water Pressure dissipation exceeds a specified percentage and/or the Volume changes by less than a specified amount within a selected time period and/or a specified maximum time is exceeded.
Permeability Stage Setup
Having selected the flow direction and sample preparation method, a sequence of Effective Pressure Gradients can be set up, each with a Cell, Back and Drain Pressure together with Initial Temperature. Data logging will commence after a specified delay, at either a specified rate or using a time step table.
The Stage will terminate either when constant flow has been achived for a defined period and/or a maximum time has been exceeded.
