Dynamic Triaxial testing is performed on soils when it is necessary to evaluate their strength and deformation properties under cyclic loading conditions. These conditions might include dynamic loading coming from earthquakes, passing vehicles and trains, sea waves, wind, vibration machines etc. There are many variations of Dynamic Triaxial tests and the user should select the one that is most accurately simulating the conditions in the field.
A new paper published in the journal of Soil Dynamics and Earthquake Engineering. VJ Tech in collaboration with Surrey university to design and produce an innovative cyclic loading device to simulate multiple force acting on a wind turbine.
