This Blog provides a summary of OCR, the Over Consolidation Ratio, which is an important aspect of Geotehnical Design
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.
How VJ Tech automated equipment increased lab efficiency and client satisfaction for Professional Soils Laboratory (PSL, UK).
The Automatic Consolidation System (ACONS) is simple and easy to use and specifically designed to carry out Oedometer testing.
These ‘Equipment Maintenance’ posts are intended to show how to service and perform basic maintenance of different VJ Tech equipment used
for consolidation testing. This post describes how
to remove, check and replace the battery on a PCB. This may be when the battery has failed or following a prolonged period where the
instrument has been switched off in humid conditions and will not power up.
Consolidation Testing Part 1 described the initial setup for a Consolidation Test involving the System Setup and Test Creation
using an Automatic CONSolidation (ACONS) Instrument. Consolidation Testing Part 2 will deal with the Test Execution and Results.
These ‘Using Clisp Studio’ posts are intended to highlight facilities in Clisp Studio that the User may not be aware of, or general facilities to help
testing run smoothly.
VJ Tech has recently developed a Rowe Consolidation Cell suitable for a 252.3 mm (10”) sample. The Rowe cell is a development of the original cell designed by Professor P W Rowe at Manchester University, England.
