PUCP Invests in Dynamic Apparatus to Study Liquefaction Resistance of Soils

In July, Dan Zanet (a GDS Geotechnical Systems Engineer) returned from a successful trip to the Pontifical Catholic University of Peru (PUCP). Where he installed a Triaxial Automated System (GDSTAS) and an Enterprise Level Dynamic System (ELDYN), which are the University’s first systems purchased from GDS.

The University will be using these systems for their research and academia. The ELDYN in particular will be used to study dynamic properties and liquefaction resistance of soils in Peru.

Thank you to the help of our agent in Peru, PSS (Professional Service Support), who helped Dan set up the laboratory and provided us with the great photos below!
