Advanced Triaxial Testing System

Standard : BS 1377:7, BS 1377:8, ASTM D4767, ASTM D2850, ASTM D7181, AASHTO T297

Triaxial test is a common method to determine the stress-strain characteristic and parameters of shear strength, mostly performed on undisturbed soil samples. The data is used for many soil engineering purposes such as ground, foundations, slope, excavations and embankments. The test is mostly performed on cylindrical soil samples of Ø 38 mm to 150 mm, with height being twice its diameter. It is subjected to stress along its vertical axis while applying fluid pressure in perpendicular directions & deformations are recorded until failure.

Three common triaxial tests namely :
– Unconsolidated Undrained (UU)
– Consolidated Undrained (CU)
– Consolidated Drained (CD)
