Specimen pre-conditioning Soil Test Equipment

Enables a cyclic axial stress to be applied to the test specimen under a constant confining pressure for a specified number of load cycles before the resilient modulus or permanent deformation tests are started. This conditioning phase helps to minimise the effects of imperfect contact between the system platens and test specimen, as well as eliminate effects due to the time interval between specimen compaction and loading.

The following soil test equipment can perform the Specimen pre-conditioning soil test:-
