FIELD SHEAR TEST

ASTM D2573
Main features
  • Strength and approximate unconfined compressive strength
  • Heavy duty model is all stainless steel construction
General description

The Field Inspection Vane Tester can be used to determine the maximum shearing force that can be exercised on a soil.

Measurement in the field (on the surface, in profile pits or at the bottom of bore holes) as well as in the laboratory (on samples) are possible.

The shear stress measured can be read on a clearly readable scale ring.

In soft soils it is not necessary to make a bore hole first. In order to determine the friction on the extension rods a dummy vane is available in these situations.

Field inspection vane tester, standard set for measurements to 200 kPa (20 t/m2) and a depth of 3m, complete with 3 vanes (16x 32mm, 20×40 mm and 25.4×50.8 mm), dummy vane, extension rods, tools and carrying bag
