Geocomp Laboratory Systems are automated universal testing stations which measure the mechanical properties of soil, rock, and geosynthetics. These state-of-the-art systems are capable of production work as well as high-quality research. Their testing system Cyclic Direct Simple Shear DSS_ load frame,  stands out on p. 39. The ShearTrac II-DSS system is a universal shear system capable of performing the consolidation, static and cyclic direct simple shear phases under full automatic control. This system is of the type developed at NGI in the mid 1960's. The DSS test generates a fairly homogeneous state of shear stress throughout the specimen, which provides initial stress condition, stress path, and deformation configuration that models numerous field loading conditions more closely than any other strength tests such as triaxial. The system consists of a computer-controlled unit that utilizes a micro-stepper motor to apply the vertical load and a servo-motor for the horizontal load to the soil specimen.

Wykeham Farrance is also one of the longest established manufacturing companies with 75+ years expertise in the world of Geotechnical Testing Systems with commitment to quality testing and is now part of the CONTROLS GROUP as the Soil Mechanics Division. The stress-strain behavior of Soil is typically investigated with triaxial test on undisturbed, remolded or compacted specimens subject to increasing loads and variable drainage conditions simulating as closely as possible the site conditions and the effects of construction, excavation, embankment, landslide, wave propagation, seismic loading. Their latest generation of Triaxial Systems for Soil Mechanics will boost your laboratory with their modular devices expertly designed for Soil Mechanics testing.
