Servo Controlled Simple Shear Testing System(SSH-100)

The design of the GCTS Simple Shear System is based on our external cell wall triaxial system.

The design of the GCTS Simple Shear System is based on our external cell wall triaxial system.The apparatus has a fixed top and a sliding bottom base mounted on special linear bearings. The system also has a stiff internal support to minimize lateral compliance of the top cap.

One of the main advantages of the GCTS Simple Shear System is that our apparatus does not require a reinforced membrane as lateral support is provided via the confining pressure. This means that consolidation can be done at K values other than Ko. The confining pressure can be servo controlled and together with the hydraulic servo control of the normal and shear loads, the GCTS system is capable of performing advanced tests such as zero volume change.

The system is capable of testing 100 mm (4 in.) and 71 mm (2.8 in.) diameter specimens. Because the internal lateral support can be adjusted up or down, various specimen heights can be tested. This means that the system can be used to test either simple shear or triaxial test specimens with heights up to 2.5 times the diameter.
