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 has recently developed a Rowe Consolidation Cell suitable for a 252.3 mm (10”) sample. The Rowe cell is a development of the original cell designed by Professor P W Rowe at Manchester University, England.
VJ Tech are proud to announce the launch of the Dual Automatic Pressure Controller
which makes full use of the technological advances in Wi-Fi, USB
communication over recent years.
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.
Part one of our Triaxial testing system setup guide explained the initial installation required that involves the System Setup, Sample Preparation and Test Creation. Now that Steps 1 and 2 (Hardware Setup and Specimen Details) of the wizard have been completed we will guide you through the necessary stage setup required for Saturation testing, Consolidation testing and Shear testing.
We have developed superior software Clisp Studio that s designed to deal with high pressure testing in laboratory environments. Our software can deal with extensive testing but is still simple to use and will benefit the technician during the entire conduction of the test.
is used to examine the shear strength of different materials, including soil. It works alongside other testing methods such as Shear Testing and Consolidation Testing to ensure the limits of the material are understood and weaknesses are identified, optimising its performance when supporting a structural frame.
It is important to carry out regular maintenance checks on your equipment to ensure you avoid any malfunctions or failures. In the event of a malfunction it is necessary to check if the TS50 Motor is functioning correctly.
Here at VJ Tech we are proud of our extensive range of consolidation test equipment and software. We have dedicated our time and expertise to build testing equipment that ensures every test carried out is simple, quick, reliable and capable of withstanding high pressured laboratory testing conditions.
