Fugro's cyclic triaxial equipment was developed in-house. It is designed to investigate the behaviour of soils when subjected to cyclic or dynamic loading. Ramsey considers that, in many ways it is the most flexible piece of equipment as the radial and vertical stresses applied to the sample can be controlled independently, in almost any predefined manner, says Fugro. This makes it possible to apply a complete earthquake loading event to a sample and observe its behaviour.
