  • A Multiple Purpose Soil Testing Apparatus

    A relatively compact soil testing system that is capable of performing monotonic/cyclic triaxial and torsional simple shear tests has been developed. A high-torque direct-drive, servo/stepper motor is used to provide the driving force. Under the servo mode, the motor could be controlled to provide a constant torque, which is used in stress-controlled tests. Strain-controlled tests are conducted ...

  • A Cyclic Undrained Simple Shear Testing Method for Soils

    An undrained simple shear testing method for soils using a torsional shear apparatus is described, in which a hollow cylindrical specimen is sheared under plane strain conditions without deforming and rotating all horizontal planes. In this testing method, the simple shear deformation mode is achieved only by several mechanical means without using an automated pressure control system. Typical ...

  • An Automated Electropneumatic Control System for Direct Simple Shear Testing

    This paper describes the design and implementation of an automated electropneumatic control system for direct simple shear testing of cohesive soils. The hardware and software used to perform automated application of consolidation increments and for subsequent constant volume shear of soil specimens is described in detail. Two servo-control algorithms are used to conduct a test, one for ...

  • Ämmässuo landfill, Finland case study

    Opened in 1987, the municipal landfill Ämmässuo in Finland extends over 50 ha, making it one of the largest in all of Scandinavia. Two test fields were set up to find a suitable solution for the surface sealing system and future slope reinforcement The structure of these fields consists of a mineral gas-drain layer, a mineral sealing layer, a geosynthetic clay liner, a protection ...
