Simple Shear Testing System


VJT9550 - Simple Shear Testing System

Part Number : VJT9550
For prices: call +44 (0)118 945 3737 or Email us
The VJ Tech Simple Shear Testing System 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 Top Cap, Base Pedestal, mould and confining rings for a 70 mm (2.75") sample), all mounted on a floor standing frame. An interchangeable 50 mm (2") sample kit is available. Horizontal loads (up to 5kN (1124 lbf)) and Vertical Loads (up to 10 kN (2248 lbf)) 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.
