  • A torsional Bromhead style device used to determine the residual shear strength of cohesive soils

  • Applies continuous rotational shear displacement to the sample using a stepper motor

  • Rotational Shear displacement measured using either a pair of Load Cells or Load Rings (junction box required)

  • The sample can be sheared through an uninterrupted displacement of any magnitude

  • Lever loading actuation of Normal Stress via dead weights

  • Features an integrated 7” touchscreen display for data input and standalone control

  • Top Cap available for Soil-Steel Interface Testing (compatible with ICP method)
