CLISP Studio Release 2.7.0.0

Apr 23 2020

Clisp Studio 2.7.0.0 Release

1.1 Introduction

Clisp Studio version 2.7.0.0 is the first major revision released to the public in 2020. This significant update to Clisp Studio includes the introduction of new testing standards across many modules, addition of new instruments and many feature upgrades.

 

1.2 New Standards

Following recent revisions introduced by ASTM and BSI a number of new standards are now supported within Clisp Studio complementing the existing supported standards. The following standards have been introduced:

 

1.2.1 CS Triax - Total Stress Triaxial

BS EN 17892-7:2017 – Unconfined Compressive Strength

BS EN 17892-8:2018 – Unconsolidated Undrained Triaxial

ASTM D2850-15 – Unconsolidated Undrained Triaxial

ASTM D2166-D2166M-16 – Unconfined Compressive Strength

AS1289.6.4.1 – 2016 – Unconsolidated Undrained Triaxial

T171 – Modified Texas Triaxial Compression

 

Support the use of internal and external load cells

Support the use of fixed and domed top caps

 

1.2.2 CS Triax and CS Triax Advanced - Effective Stress Triaxial

BS EN 17892-9:2018 – Consolidated triaxial compression tests on water saturated soils

 

Support the use of internal and external load cells

Support the use of fixed and domed top caps

 

Both modules require an Internal load cell required for Anisotropic consolidation and K0.

CS Triax Advanced only - Internal load cell required for Stress Path and Cyclic control.


1.2.3 CS Res - Resilient Modulus

Materials Testing Manual Edition 4 - Q137 - Permanent deformation and resilient modulus of unbound material

AG Standard graphs & tables added for permanent deformation results and analysis. Multiple performance improvements in large data set calculation

 

1.2.4 CS CBR - CBR Testing

ASTM D1883-16 – Californian Bearing Ratio of a Laboratory Compacted Specimen

 

1.2.5 CS Oedo - Consolidation

ASTM D2435-11 - One-Dimensional Consolidation Properties of Soils Using Incremental Loading

 

1.2.6 CS Perm - Permeability Testing

BS EN17892-11:2019 – Permeability Testing

ASTM D5084-16 - Measurement of Hydraulic Conductivity of Saturated Porous Materials Using a Flexible Wall Permeameter

 

1.3 New Features

Some of the new features added to this version of Clisp Studio include:

 

CS Stresspath now displays Mohr circles within the failure stage of the test.

 

CS Unsat now supports the use of on-sample transducers for the measurement of radial changes and small strain measurement; the use of fixed top caps is also now supported.

In CS Ringshear the British Standards now logs the outputs from the vertical displacement transducer and load cells through the preshear schedule. The test also now works out the average of the two load cells and logs and displays this for easy analysis of test data.

 

The soil steel interface test plan for the Ringshear system now has an additional stop criteria; this is to stop a test based on sample height change as well as the other features added to CS Ringshear.

 

The YouTube button within Clisp now takes you to our YouTube page instead of the video page on our website. The YouTube channel is updated more regularly to help provide you with better support and information about products and software.

 

CS Resilient standards now support the operation of a DSC1000 the latest VJ Tech dynamic system controller.

 

CS Dyna now support the operation of a DSC1000 the latest VJ Tech dynamic system controller.

 

CS Constant Shear now allows users to undertake multiple consolidation schedules.

 

New Colour coding has been added to Clisp to clearly show when a schedule is in a waiting state.

 

The new standards introduced into CS triax support the use of both internal and external load cells with use of both domed and fixed top caps (please check with VJ Tech to discuss compatibility of your system).

 

CS CRS now supports the use of instruments other than just APC’s for the feedback of pressure. This now allows the use of manual pressure control.

 

CS Triax Advanced now allows K0 consolidation testing that ramps the vertical stress and maintains the diameter of the sample using cell pressure control.

1.4 New Instruments

Clisp Studio now supports the additional new instruments:

 

1.4.1 DSC 1000 – Dynamic Servo Controller

 

This is VJ Tech’s latest dynamic controller and can be used with dynamic triaxal and resilient modulus systems.

1.4.2 VJT 2585-SS Direct and Simple Shear

The VJT 2585-SS is also now supported. This is a single shear machine than can perform both direct and simple shear tests.

1.4.3 VJT0650M-PHL – High Capacity ACONS

VJ Techs new high capacity (50kN) ACONS Pro is also now supported by this release of Clisp Studio.

1.5 New Test Modules

This release of Clisp sees the full introduction of the new CS Triax Advanced test module. This supports triaxial testing to the new BS EN 17892 triaxial standards. The module offers flexibility and testing options outside of the traditional standards. The module allows saturation, consolidation (Isotropic, anisotropic and K0), stresspath, static shearing and slow cyclic control. The module when used with the correct hardware can operate both compression and extension tests. The module also supports the use of on sample transducers and mid height pore water pressure measurement.

 

1.6 New Test Types

The version Clisp Studio allows users to undertake more test types than ever before. These include support for new international standards in triaxial, resilient modulus, permeability and CBR testing. The modules also allow the operation of differing testing scenarios such as K0 consolidation whilst ramping vertical stress, control of either effective or total stress in anisotropic consolidation and stress path analysis. The triaxial advanced module allows users to easily select between drained or undrained testing with a schedule. Slow cyclic testing up to 0.1Hz is also possible using a Pro series triaxial frame using the CS Triax Advanced module.

 

The Simple shear and dynamic simple shear modules now also support both constant normal height and constant normal stress during shearing. Constant normal stiffness tests are also supported using the cs constant shear module.

 

1.7 Miscellaneous

The following performance improvements have been included within this release:

Test plan navigation in tests with large number of schedules.

Variable calculation speed improved

Test Import speed improved
