The GDS Triaxial Testing System (GDSTTS) is a fully automated triaxial testing system designed principally for stress path testing.
The GDSTTS is based on the classic Bishop & Wesley type stress path triaxial cell which controls stress directly on the sample. The system can be configured using Enterprise, Standard or Advanced level controllers. The 38/50mm cell is for up to 7kN axial force, with the larger 70/100mm cell up to 25kN. This is the system of choice for teaching laboratories and researchers.
Applications include tunnelling, dam and construction testing
