SOIL MECHANICS - TRIAXIAL


The triaxial test brings the sample back to  its site conditions through the varius steps characterizing the triaxial test (saturation, consolidation) and measure the material resistance to shearing and  the connections between stress and strain.

During the standard triaxial test the sample is die-cut or reconstructed in a cylindrical shape, wrapped by an impermeable membrane, laterally confined by hydraulic pressure inside a cell and finally subjected to an axial load which generates the sample breaking.

Various  standard triaxial systems for teaching purposes are available complete with dial gauges, dynamometric rings and data acquisition systems for the upgrading.

The  Automatic Static and Dynamic triaxial machines complete the range, equipped with control units and first level software which can be completely programmable and controllable remotely.
