Resilient Modulus Initial Conditions (AG Standard)
Initially, this will only have one Stage in the table, but Stages can be added and removed as required using the ‘Add’ and ‘Delete’ buttons.
However, clicking on the ‘Defaults’ button will populate the table with the 66 pre-defined Stages of the AG standard.
The Static Stress level to be maintained throughout can also be specified.
Resilient Modulus Stopping Conditions (AG Standard)
The test will be stopped if the Permanent Vertical Strain exceeds the specified percentage that you have specified.
Quick Shear Stage Setup
The optional ‘Quick Shear’ Stage Initial Conditions enable you to ramp the Axial Strain at a specified percentage/min whilst logging data at an input rate.
The Shear stage is stopped when the Axial Strain extends beyond a specified percentage and/or the Peak Stress drops by a defined percentage - allowing for an optional input temporary percentage drop.
