Determining the mechanical properties of soils is a very important step to design foundations,embankments and other soil structures. Building constructions, excavations, tunneling and similar applications have several effects on the subsoil structures and these effects are successfully simulated with Triaxial Tests where the stress-strain relation of undisturbed soil specimen are investigated by subjecting the soil sample to different stress levels and drainage conditions. The Labtest Triaxial Test System provides automated triaxial compression tests on cylindrical undisturbed and remolded soil samples. Unconsolidated undrained (UU), consolidated drained (CD) and consolidated undrained (CU) compression tests can be automatically run, controlled and reported using this apparatus.
