The GCTS Triaxial Test Systems for Soils are designed to automatically perform triaxial shear tests on cylindrical soil samples. These systems are also capable of testing numerous other soil characteristics, such as resilient modulus, cyclic strength, liquefaction, and complex modulus. There are a large number of systems available to meet all specifications.
The GCTS Triaxial Testing Systems for Soils feature:
ASTM D2850 Standard Test Method for Unconsolidated-Undrained Triaxial Compression Test on Cohesive Soils
ASTM D4767 Standard Test Method for Consolidated Undrained Triaxial Compression Test for Cohesive Soils
ASTM D7181 Method for Consolidated Drained Triaxial Compression Test for Soils
The GCTS Triaxial Test Systems can be used to perform many different tests, including triaxial shear, liquefaction, resilient modulus, cyclic strength, and complex modulus.
The basic systems can also be upgraded in order to test unsaturated soils and frozen soils. True triaxial testing systems are also available to provide increased control over the stress paths of the soil specimen during shearing. Systems are available to perform these true triaxial tests on both cubical and hollow cylindrical specimens.
