DEF-SRCP Soil Circumferential Deformation Device


The GCTS DEF-SRCP Soil Circumferential Deformation Device reliably measures the average change in circumference directly on the specimen providing the most accurate results. The superior design coupled with the excellent materials from which the device is made provides precision and accurate results.

 

  • Measures average radial strains
  • 2,000 kPa water service
  • Accommodates specimens with an initial diameter from 35 mm to 75 mm
  • Made of lightweight materials for minimum mass
  • Can be used for uniaxial or triaxial testing
  • Includes non-contacting sensor
  • Very easy to setup and use

 

The GCTS Soil Circumferential Deformation Device (DEF-SRCP) measures the average change in circumference directly on the specimen, providing accurate radial strain measurements. The device consists of a circumferential roller assembly made with anodized aluminum links and Teflon rollers to ensure smooth displacements.

 

This material combination has a small mass and high stiffness to minimize device compliance. The DEF-SRCP includes an integrated submersible proximity sensor with 5 mm range. The standard DEF-SRCP can be configured to accommodate specimens with an initial diameter from 35 mm to 75 mm by adding or removing assembly links.

 

Additional links can be purchased to accommodate specimens with up to 150 mm in diameter. For larger specimens, we recommend using the GCTS Large-Scale Deformation Device (DEF-S1600).
