Automatic Oedometer System

The GDS Automatic Oedometer System (GDSAOS) is the modern replacement for a traditional hanging weight oedometer.

The GDSAOS is a self-contained stepper motor driven unit that can be controlled  either manually using its Smart Keypad or from a PC using the USB interface. There is no requirement for compressed air or manually placed weights. When used with the GDSLAB control and data acquisition software, the GDSAOS can be used for a complete array of tests beyond those which a hanging weight oedometer can perform.

Application includes offshores testing, tunnelling testing,embankment dams testing, construction and unsaturated testing
