The VJ Tech Simple Shear Testing System is;

  • Used to carry out a simple shear test to determine the shear modulus of a soil sample.
  • The sample is contained within confining rings under constant volume conditions and is sheared until it is stressed to failure.
  • The apparatus is mounted on a floor standing frame, has inbuilt data logging and is supplied complete with a lever loading device, hanger and sample unit.
  • It also includes the Top Cap, Base Pedestal, mould and confining rings for a 70 mm (2.75") sample) and an interchangeable 50 mm (2") sample kit is available.
  • Horizontal loads (up to 5kN (1124 lbf)) and Vertical Loads (up to 10 kN (2248 lbf)) are measured with S-beam load cells
  • Horizontal and vertical movement is measured with linear displacement LSCT transducers.
