Dynamic (Cyclic) Testing

Dynamic (Cyclic) Testing is carried out to understand the behaviour of soil under cyclic loading to determine how it may perform with repeated pressures and forces in the future. Dynamic Testing on smaller specimens make it easier to monitor and control any of the specific properties of the material on a larger scale, or, when it is in its effective field.

Reliable test results are down to efficient models and superior software. With VJ Tech it is possible to tailor your equipment to your requirements – just to speak to a member of our team.
