UCT-1000 Uniaxial Testing System


The GCTS UCT-1000 Uniaxial Testing System is capable of performing the uniaxial compression test and the uniaxial tension test with high precision through the use of advanced software, hardware, and electronics. This system can also perform a variety of other tests as needed by the operator. 

 

  • Compression and Tension loading system with electro-hydraulic closed-loop digital servo control
  • Static and Dynamic loading capabilities
  • Adjustable crosshead
  • Accepts GCTS High Pressure triaxial cell & other testing components
  • Ideal for performing unconfined compression, bending, indirect tension, fracture, creep, and other material tests
  • Available systems with load capacities up to 4,500 kN (1,000 kips) and stiffness up to 5,000 kN/mm (28x106 lbs/inch)
  • Economical “turn-key” systems built to customer specifications.

ASTM D2166 / D2166M Standard Test Method for Unconfined Compressive Strength of Cohesive Soil

GCTS Uniaxial Testing Systems include our state-of-the-art SCON-1400 Wireless Servo Controller and Data Acquisition System  and advanced software. The system is capable of performing static and dynamic closed-loop tests and can control based on the load, deformation, strain or any other measured or calculated parameter. Automatic “bump-less” or smooth control transfer can be programmed at any test stage. The 64-bit Windows compatible software can easily send your test data and report to any computer connected to your local network
