Direct Shear Test
The GCTS Direct Shear Testing Systems are ideal for performing direct shear tests on soil specimens to determine the shear strength, angle of internal friction, and cohesion of the soil. Through the use of advanced electronics and software, the testing procedure can be completely automated and is extremely accurate.
The GCTS Direct Shear Testing Systems feature:
ASTM D3080 / D3080M Standard Test Method for Direct Shear Test of Soils Under Consolidated Drained Conditions
The GCTS Direct Shear Systems feature electro-hydraulic closed-loop digital servo control of the shear and normal load actuators. This allows for complete automation of the testing procedure, making performance of the test simple and accurate. The systems can easily perform both constant normal stiffness and constant normal stress tests.
