<p>RocData is a versatile toolkit for the analysis of rock and soil strength data, and the determination of strength envelopes and other physical parameters. RocData now includes RocProp, a database of intact rock properties that runs as a standalone application.<br ...
This test cover the determination of the consolidated drained shear strength of a soil material in direct shear. The AUTOSHEAR machine is controlled by a microprocessor system which reads and processes horizontal force and displacement readings, manages the ...
The Torshear machine is dedicated to the determination of the residual shear strength. The residual shear strength of soils is sometimes also termed the ultimate shear strength. This is the strength of soil when it is sheared to large displacements, for example ...
The Cone Penetrometer is used to carry on liquid limit tests onsoil samples. It is a static test depending on the soil shear strength. The test is based on the relationship between moisture content and the penetration of a cone into the soil sample under pre-set ...
<p>ShearTrac-II-DSS</p> <p>The ShearTrac II-DSS system is a universal shear system capable of performing the consolidation, static and cyclic direct simple shear phases under full automatic control. This system is of the type developed at NGI in the mid 1960's. ...
This test cover the determination of the consolidated drained shear strength of a soil material in direct shear. The Digishear machine, with digital control and display of speed, is driven by a high resolution stepper motor and worm reduction unit. Can accommodate ...

<p>The field vane test enables the direct measurement of the undrained shear resistance of saturated cohesive soils. It can be carried out either in the field, on the wall or at the bottom of an excavation, or even in a laboratory on a suitably contained specimen.<br ...
<p>The Geovane is a hand-held instrument used for determining soil shear strength providing the reading in kPa. The device is simple to use. A 19mm vane blade is screwed into the base of the Geovane and the vane is pushed into the soil. Simply rotate the Geovane ...
The field vane shear test (FVST) is the most widely used method for measuring the undrained shear strength and sensitivity of soft clays in-situ. FVST is a more economic method than for example CPT as its operation does not reuire a drilling rig or highly ...
