|Key features ||Benefits to the user |
|Each system may be configured exactly to the customer’s specification and budget: ||Users can choose the transducers, pressure controllers, triaxial cell or just parts to integrate into existing equipment to build their ideal set-up. |
|Direct actuation of axial stress through the hydraulically controlled ram in the base of each cell: ||The Bishop and Wesley cell is designed specifically for stress path testing. Direct axial stress application means greater accuracy for stress control. |
|GDSTTS can run advanced tests: ||Tests such as stress paths, slow cyclic and K0, all under PC control. |
|Standard through to advanced configurations: ||GDS provide advanced (ADVTTS) systems with all the features of the standard systems but with higher accuracies and resolution. |
|May be upgraded at any time: || |
Additional transducers, software modules, bender element testing and unsaturated testing makes the system future proof.
