Direct/Residual Shear Data Acquisition Software automatically records data during consolidation and shear phases of direct and residual shear testing. This intuitive software utilizes clear data entry fields and testing prompts to reduce user error and increase repeatability.
Direct/Residual Shear Software runs on computers with Windows XP or newer operating systems and is designed for convenient use on tablets and laptops with touchscreen control. Large pop-up keyboards can be enabled for touchscreen computers or disabled when a PC with a mouse and keyboard is used.
Real-time calculations are performed throughout the test procedure and saved automatically at test completion in accordance with ASTM and AASHTO specifications. In addition, a friction angle tool allows quick determinations of both the friction angle (ϕ) and cohesion intercept (c). The testing agency information, company logo, sample data, final test results, and corresponding graphs are included in the final testing report. Test data and sample information can also be exported to a spreadsheet application or converted into a PDF document.
Direct/Residual Shear Data Acquisition Software is optimized for use with the HM-382 and HM-380D Direct Shear Machines, which include the required HM-419 Four-Channel Data Readout Box, two HM-739 Linear Variable Displacement Transducers, and HM-424D Load Cell. These components can also be purchased separately to outfit other direct shear machines. Customization using third-party displacement components is possible. Contact Gilson tech support for compatibility information.
