New Paper Published (Soil Dynamics and Earthquake engineering) - An innovative cyclic loading device to study the long term performance of offshore wind turbines
A new paper published in the journal of Soil Dynamics and Earthquake Engineering. VJ Tech in collaboration with Surrey university to design and produce an innovative cyclic loading device to simulate multiple force acting on a wind turbine. 

Dynamic Soil Structure of Offshore Wind Turbines and long term performance prediction: Linking scaled model test results to prototype prediction via element tests

Dynamic Soil Structure of Offshore Wind Turbines and long term performance prediction: Linking scaled model test results to prototype prediction via element tests
In an effort to reduce the CO2 emissions and cover its energy needs, UK has turned to renewable sources of energy and more specifically to offshore wind power harvesting. Offshore Wind Farming is considered to be one of the most reliable ways to produce energy, because: a) the average wind speed over sea is generally higher and more consistent than onshore, making the offshore wind farming more efficient b) the noise and vibrations from the wind turbines do not have any impacts on the environment or human activities due to their distance from land (more than 10km), their size can be twice the size of the onshore turbines and c) wave and current loading can be harvested as well. Also the wind turbine technology is relatively more matured those other forms of renewables.

Direct Simple Shear

VJ Tech has developed a Simple Shear Testing System, used to carry out a direct simple shear test to determine the shear modulus of a soil sample. The sample is contained within confining rings under applied normal load and is sheared along a predefined plane until it is stressed to failure.

VJ Tech Training and Customer Support Centre

The VJ Tech Training & Customer support Centre is located in Wokingham, a short distance from London. It provides all the complete Standard and Advanced System Setups necessary for customer training and support. We support Triaxial, Shear and Consolidation testing, as well as more advanced training such as Dynamic Triaxial, Dynamic Simple Shear, Bender Elements and On-Sample Transducers. All necessary sample preparation tools are available to ensure a smooth and practical learning experience.
