GDS’ NEW Electromechanical Dynamic Cyclic Simple Shear Confined (EMDCSS-CON) is the premier device for simple shear testing. It is capable of carrying out dynamic cyclic tests ranging from small strain (0.005% shear strain amplitude) to large strain (10% shear strain amplitude), as well as a large range of extremely accurate quasi-static testing.
The EMDCSS-CON enables full effective stress control of test specimen. Saturation, b-check, shear and true drained and undrained simple shear can be performed. The apparatus also enables simple shear to be performed in controlled unsaturated conditions.
Supplied with a built in frame (as shown in the picture) the apparatus allows system components to be optimally positioned.
