Unsaturated Consolildation Testing

Unsaturated one dimensional consolidation can be performed to define the Stress Dependant Soil Water Characteristic Curve (SDSWCC). Vertical stress is applied under K0 conditions whilst pore water and pore air pressure are precisely controlled. The GDS range allows for various options to perform SDSWCC testing.

Unsaturated one dimensional consolidation can be performed to define the Stress Dependant Soil Water Characteristic Curve (SDSWCC). Vertical stress is applied under K0 conditions whilst pore water and pore air pressure are precisely controlled.

The GDS range allows for various options to perform SDSWCC testing. The Rowe and Barden cell is the choice for a direct axial stress controlled unsaturated consolidation system. Alternatively a CRS cell (Constant Rate of Strain) can be used with either a 10kN or 50kN load frame. Whether using a Rowe and Barden cell or the CRS cell, each is supplied modified from the standard saturated version with a high air entry porous disc installed in the base.
