The LoadTrac III / FlowTrac II or III system fully automates the performance of a Constant Rate-of-Strain Consolidation (CRS) test. Once a soil sample is in place, and the test conditions selected, this system will run the entire CRS test from start to finish. The LoadTrac III / FlowTrac II or III system consolidates the sample through a loading path specified by using constant rate of strain loading. The FlowTrac II or III is used during the back pressure saturation as well as maintaining a constant cell pressure during the consolidation phase of the test. To avoid running the test too fast or too slow, the system uses Excess Pore Pressure Ratio Limits.
