DEF-CAN Diametral Deformation Device

Cantilever Bridge Deformation Equipment

The GCTS DEF-CAN Diametral Deformation Device is used to measure specimen diameter changes in order to calculate radial strains. This device mounts directly onto a specimen through the use of long screws attached to the arms of the device that press onto the specimen. By using these long screws, the device can be quickly and easily adjusted to fit a large range of specimen diameters. If the screws do not provide a fully stable connection, springs can be added to hold the arms onto the specimen.
