VJ Tech’s SD - SWCC Testing System is used to determine the influence of the stress state on the Soil Water Characteristic Curve (SWCC) of a soil sample.
The Multi-Purpose Consolidation Cell is fitted with the precision made 70 mm diameter UNSAT kit, one of 3 interchangeable testing kits specifically designed for this cell. This comes with a 1 Bar High Air Entry Disc as standard, but other capacities are available.
Vertical Load is applied using our Motorised Auto Multi-Purpose Frame and suction is generated using a Pro Pneumatic APC at the top of the sample and a Pro Hydraulic APC at the base, thus applying the axis-translation technique.
Both drying and wetting SWCCs can be determined, allowing hysteresis to be studied.

The Test is controlled using our Clisp Studio SD-SWCC Software Module, which has easy test setup and configuration and facilities for data export to Excel.

SD-SWCC System

Features:

  • Air-tight cell
  • Fitted with High Air Entry Disc (1 bar default)
  • Temperature sensor
  • Heater with separate variable temperature controller for controlling condensation
  • Able to determine both drying and wetting SWCCs
  • Load balance pressure compensator
  • Pro Automatic Pressure Controllers for maintaining suction
  • Motorised ACONS Pro Multi-Purpose Consolidation Frame for Vertical Load
  • Up to 5 input channels (2 x Analogue & 1 x Digital) on ACONS Pro & 1 Analogue on each APC
  • The same Frame and Cell can also be used for consolidation and CRS testing
