In 2017, a delegation from the University of Split visited GDS’s offices in the UK, whilst considering apparatus for their research project on the behaviour of soft rocks and soil (e.g. residual flysch soil that occurs after soft rock degradation in nature or mixtures thereof.) in the Dalmatia and Split region.
After a lengthy tender process, a lot of hard work from the University and great support from our local agent RO-TEHNOLOGIJA, the funding was approved and we are delighted to share some images of the installation.
The apparatus was purchased through project KK.01.1.1.02.0027, co-financed by the Croatian Government and the European Union through the European Regional Development Fund “The Competitiveness and Cohesion Operational Programme.”
“Our first user experiences are extremely positive and we are satisfied with the performance of the device(s), the precision of control in static and dynamic conditions (DYNTTS) and the possibilities that I think we will explore for a long time. So far, with just a few samples examined, we can’t say more, but we are aware that we have finally got a powerful research tool.” Nataša Štambuk Cvitanović, Associate Professor, PhD, MEng, CE, University of Split.
Apparatus Purchased by the University
