Sample Assembly for the DSS with Confining Pressure

Sample Assembly for the DSS with Confining Pressure

This Blog covers sample assembly for the Dynamic Simple Shear with Confining Pressure System. This includes undisturbed and remoulded specimens for both confining pressure tests, and confining ring tests.

This system is used for repetitive situations such as offshore wind turbines, where the structure has to withstand the varying strength of wave motion.

Introduction to Cyclic (Dynamic) Triaxial Testing

Introduction to Cyclic (Dynamic) Triaxial Testing

Dynamic Triaxial testing is performed on soils when it is necessary to evaluate their strength and deformation properties under cyclic loading conditions. These conditions might include dynamic loading coming from earthquakes, passing vehicles and trains, sea waves, wind, vibration machines etc. There are many variations of Dynamic Triaxial tests and the user should select the one that is most accurately simulating the conditions in the field.
