The VJ Tech Dynamic (Cyclic) Triaxial Testing System is capable of providing fully automatic static and dynamic (cyclic) Triaxial testing using a VJ Tech Triscan frame together with a high speed Dynamic Servo Controller.
This example System Setup uses a TriSCAN 50 kN frame with a 75 mm (3 inch) Triaxial Cell. The DSC3000M is used for the dynamic actuator control and also measurement of Load, Displacement and PWP. A pneumatic APC is used to control Cell Pressure (using an Air/Water Interface Cylinder), and a hydraulic APC is used for Back Pressure control.
The system is controlled using the csDYNA module of our renowned user friendly Clisp Studio software suite. This enables you to setup, monitor and control the Test, and then output the results in Excel format for further manipulation if required.
The software conforms to ASTM3999 & ASTM5311.
