GDS' Quality Manager Diogo Teles, with the support of our agent Sigma, completed the successful installation and training of a Dynamic Triaxial Testing System (DYNTTS) with a Bender Element System upgrade, at the University of Sharjah. The apparatus was tailored to meet the university's specific research requirements and will be used by their geotechnical students within their College of Engineering.
The University of Sharjah will use the DYNTTS for Cyclic Triaxial Testing of bio-cemented sand samples, building on their existing testing capability, featuring GDS’ Resonant Column and Triaxial Testing Systems (Static).
We would like to take this opportunity to thank the university and our agent Sigma for their kind hospitality. We wish the University of Sharjah every success in their future endeavours and look forward to reading about the innovative research and future discoveries.
