Large Scale Polyaxial Rock Testing (RPS-600)

The GCTS RPS-600 Polyaxial Rock Testing system can be used to study the intermediate principal stress effect on rock engineering behavior and describe adequately the strength of rock under a general system of Polyaxial compressive stresses.

The GCTS RPS-600 Polyaxial Rock Testing system can be used to study the intermediate principal stress effect on rock engineering behavior and describe adequately the strength of rock under a general system of Polyaxial compressive stresses. The RPS-600 is designed to apply 3 independent stresses (σ1, σ2 and σ3) onto a cubical test specimen. The stresses are achieved through hydraulic intensifiers applying pressure to solid platens in contact with the specimen. The system can be upgraded with pore pressure and temperature control.

GCTS also offers hydraulic fracturing fixtures to approximate the effects of anisotropic stress state on borehole stability. Ultrasonic sensors can also be provided to study the effects anisotropic stress conditions on compression and shear wave velocities. Velocities for all three axes can easily be measured during Polyaxial tests with this option.
