Conventional geotechnical apparatus
- There are three sets of static and dynamic triaxial apparatus. Tests under conditions of UU, CU, CD etc. can be carried out. The sample sizes are 3.9cmx8.0cm and 8.0cm x 16cm respectively.
Static triaxial apparatus
- There are 10 sets of consolidation apparatus which can be used to measure the consolidation characteristics.
- There is one set of direct shear apparatus which can be used to test the strength parameters such as cohesive and internal friction angle and friction of interface.
Direct shear apparatus
- There is one set of dynamic simple shear apparatus which can be used to study the dynamic characteristics such as cohesion under small strain.
