TESTING AND monitoring equipment manufacturer ELE International has launched a new cyclic triaxial testing system, designed to measure the effects of wind, waves, earthquakes and vibrations on soil stability in a range of civil engineering applications.

Similar in appearance and operation to conventional triaxial tests, the new system can be integrated into existing commercial, research or teaching laboratories.

ELE claims the new system holds particular potential for use in research applications, as customised test routines can be designed and saved, enabling previous test data to be verified by accessing and analysing earlier test methods.

The company claims the new system is especially valuable as an integral part of the design process for use in predicting the stability of building foundations which may be subjected to vibrations, such as from earthquake after-shocks, blast vibrations and piling vibrations, railways and heavy goods vehicles.
