Cyclic Triaxial Testing System for Unbound Material Testing

This testing system is a dynamic universal testing machine with electro-mechanical precision drive for compression and tension tests up to 30 kN and for high accuracy cyclic tests up to 15 Hz and covers all the test procedures for unbound material triaxial testing.

Different submersible transducers for higher accuracy is available e.g. submersible local axial-deformation; submersible load cell for accurate measurement of axial loads with confining pressure compensation and Submersible local radial-deformation measuring devices.

The powerful multifunctional GEOsys Software supports all the test procedures with a well access to all testing sessions.
