Unsaturated Shear Testing System


VJT9540 - Unsaturated Shear Testing System

The VJ Tech Unsaturated Shear Testing System is used to carry out unsaturated shear tests on soil samples up to 75 mm (2.95 inches) (square or round) in a sealed sample chamber. The Unsaturated Shearbox is bench mounted and is of rugged construction designed for lab environments. The microprocessor based system incorporates a stepper motor drive for horizontal load, a large graphical display, a touch sensitive keypad and forward/reverse travel limit switches. The pneumatic loading concept is utilised for applying the vertical load to the sample (compressed air supply required). When testing, suction is maintained using a Pneumatic APC at the top of the sample and a Hydraulic APC at the base. Built in data acquisition automates the testing by recording the horizontal and vertical loads and displacements.Our csUnsatShear software enables easy test setup and control with live tabular and graphical display of measured and calculated parameters and easy test and data export and import.
