Fully Automatic Static Ring Shear Apparatus
This piece of equipment is a fully automatic, closed-loop controlled, ring shear, capable of conducting highly precise tests to measure shear strength parameters at failure and residual shear strength. It uses a constant shear plane and an unlimited angle of rotation or shear strain.
This development includes our experience with details related to wall friction compensation and shear box guidance.
Applicable with free selectable and programmable closed-loop controlled stress-paths with stress, strain and height/volume controlled test procedures.
- Pore pressure transducer
- Unsaturated test conditions including an automatic pressure controller or conventional pressure panel and a confining pressure cell
