How GDS’ Triaxial Apparatus Strengthens the Collaboration between Laboratory Testing and Numerical Modelling

GEOTEKO’s laboratory works closely with their numerical computation and modelling department, as well as with external clients performing similar calculations. This collaborative approach has many benefits for the laboratory and for those who use the laboratory test results. Direct communication between the designers and the laboratory enables:

  • Calibration of the constitutive model selected for the analysed boundary problem.
  • Adapting test programs to the project needs.
  • Carry out on-the-spot analysis of test results and if necessary, change the program of subsequent studies.
  • Optimization of the test costs (maximum ratio of information to test costs).
