Cyclic DSS Apparatus
Option 1 - ShearTrac II-DSS
The ShearTrac II-DSS system is a universal shear system capable of performing the consolidation, static and
cyclic direct simple shear phases under full automatic control. The DSS test generates a fairly homogeneous state of shear stress throughout the specimen,
which provides initial stress condition, stress path, and deformation configuration that models numerous field
loading conditions more closely than any other strength tests such as triaxial.
