True Triaxial (Polyaxial) Test
The GCTS True Triaxial System was designed to perform extremely accurate true triaxial tests on rock specimens. This is done by allowing the stresses in all three dimensions to be individually controlled by the test operator, which allows for precise control of the stress path during the test.
The True Triaxial System features:
Small-scale testing can be performed inside a standard GCTS Triaxial Cell using the RPX-300 Polyaxial Fixture
The GCTS Rock True Triaxial System was designed to analyze the effect of the intermediate principal stress on the strength of a rock specimen. This is done by allowing the test operator to control the stresses on all three faces of a cubical rock specimen.
Options are available to allow for temperature control, ultrasonic velocity tests, and wellbore stability tests.
