RingSHEAR Apparatus with Stand and Data Acquisition


VJT5600A - Ringshear Advanced Apparatus

The VJ Tech RingSHEAR Apparatus with Stand and Data Acquisition is a torsional shear device, which produces accurate and repeatable test results to determine the residual shear strength of cohesive soils, which is particularly important when assessing slope stability. The RingSHEAR features a digital display and control panel and can be computer controlled through the USB port. The rotational shearing action is applied continuously until a constant residual strength value is achieved. The advantages of a ring shear machine are that there is no change in the area of the cross section of the shear plane as the test proceeds and the sample can be sheared through an uninterrupted displacement of any magnitude. The user friendly Clisp Studio software conforms to BS1377-7 & ASTM D6467-13. A Ringshear Interface Top Cap Assembly is available which includes an annular stainless steel interface disc with an average roughness of Ra 6.3-12.5 for soil-steel interface testing
Part Number : VJT5600A
