Resonant Column & Torsional Shear Tests
The GCTS Resonant Column & Torsional Shear Testing Systems were designed to be able to perform both resonant column and torsional shear tests. This is done using advanced software as well as precise testing equipment.
The Resonant Column and Torsional Shear Systems feature:
ASTM D4015 Standard Test Methods for Modulus and Damping of Soils by Fixed-Base Resonant Column Devices
ASTM D7608 Standard Test Method for Torsional Ring Shear Test
This testing system is a true 2-in-1 testing apparatus, capable of performing both the resonant column and the torsional shear test on a solid or hollow soil specimen. This system allows for complete automation of the testing procedure, allowing for easy testing and accurate results.
With the ultrasonic platens, this system is capable of determining the entire shear modulus curve with significant overlap for a soil sample.
