Cyclic Triaxial Testing System (with compensated Ram)

Cyclic Triaxial Testing System with compensated Ram

Model No. LO7025/2 DYN

This testing system is a dynamic universal testing machine with electro-mechanical precision drive for compression and tension tests up to 20 kN and for high accuracy cyclic tests up to 10 Hz and covers all the test procedures for unbound material triaxial testing.

The system includes a special load pistol construction to compensate cell-pressure changes affected by the volume change of the movement of piston in and out of the triaxial cell.

Static and dynamic load applies from the bottom of triaxial cell. At top of cell there is a free operating space to facilitate installation of sample, or force measuring device or etc.


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

 


  • Electromechanical precision servo-drive for highly precise environmental-friendly device control.
  • Specially designed and configured for static and cyclic triaxial test methods.
  • Environmental-friendly unit, no need for compressed air, or hydraulic power source.
  • Static and dynamic load applies from the bottom of triaxial cell.
  • Different submersible transducers for higher accuracy is available.
  • For all requirements of seismic research, and all kinds of stress and strain path tests
