Large Direct/Residual Shear Testing System


VJT9520 - Large Direct/Residual Shear System

VJ Tech’s new microprocessor based electro-mechanical/hydraulic large shear box is specifically designed for direct and residual shear testing on large specimen sizes up to 300 mm (11.8 inches) square and has a built-in four channel data logger for automatic data acquisition. The horizontal load is applied electro-mechanically and the vertical load is applied using a hydraulic actuator. The machine is capable of applying 50 or 100 kN (11240 or 22480 lbf) vertical and horizontal force. The user friendly Clisp Studio csSHEAR software provides the necessary test configuration, control and data acquisition and conforms to BS1377-7, AS1289.6.2.2, ASTM D3080-04 & Q181C
Part Number : VJT9520
