Consolidation Testing Systems (GDSCTS) including STDCTS and ADVCTS

The GDS Consolidation Testing System (GDSCTS) is a state-of-the-art, fully-automated consolidation testing system designed for soil. GDSCTS can run classic tests such as step loading to more advanced tests such as automated testing rate by controlled hydraulic gradient or cyclic loading, all under PC control. In fact, using the flexibility of GDSLAB software, almost any user-defined test may be performed. The GDSCTS has the option of radial drainage or radial & vertical drainage. Technical specification: Accuracy of pressure measurement = <0.1% full range (ADVCTS) or <0.15% full range (STDCTS). Resolution of pressure measurement = 0.5kPa (ADVCTS) or 1kPa (STDCTS). Accuracy of volume measurement = <0.1% measured value (ADVCTS) or <0.25% measured value (STDCTS). Resolution of volume measurement = 0.5mm3 (ADVCTS) or 1mm3 (STDCTS). Transducer resolution = 16bit. Computer-automated control of testing - not just data logging MS Windows® software (GDSLAB) for test control and post-test processing. Fully expandable ‘future-proof’ software to allow multiple test stations or additional hardware to be incorporated at any time.
