Advanced Simple Shear Lever Loading Apparatus


VJT2821 - Advanced Simple Shear Lever Loading Apparatus

The VJ Tech Advanced Simple Shear Lever Loading apparatus is used to carry out a simple shear test to determine the shear modulus of a soil sample. The sample is contained within confining rings under constant volume conditions and is sheared until it is stressed to failure. The apparatus is microprocessor controlled, has inbuilt data logging and is supplied complete with a lever loading device, hanger and sample unit (with mould and confining rings), all mounted on a floor standing frame. Horizontal and vertical loads (up to 5kN) are measured with S-beam load cells with horizontal and vertical movement measured with linear displacement LSCT transducers. The controlling Clisp Studio software conforms to ASTM D6528-07.
