Triaxial Cell
Total stresses when measured in a triaxial cell are more complex in their nature. Numerous parameters may be measured including back, pressure, pore water pressure and volume change. From these values various engineering properties can be calculated.
Triaxial cell is used to apply total stress. The sample is subjected to an alround confining pressure. Load is then applied through piston of triaxial cell on a pressure pad on the top of the specimen. In a triaxial cell, sample is confined in a rubber membrane. Triaxial cells are manufactured from carefully selected material. The cells are manufactured to accomodate different sizes of specimen. Universal triaxial cell accommodates samples of diameters 38 MM to 100 MM.





Triaxial Cell
  • Specifications : The cell is useful for testing 38 mm dia x 76 mm high soil specimen. Transparent prespex chamber with anvil and loading plunger. The cell is easily opened by releasing four nuts of the tie rods. It is leakproof upto 10 kg/cm. sq. fluid pressure. An oil plug which can also be used as an air vent is provided for introducing a thin layer of oil over water. This provides effective sealing at the plunger for long duration test. The cell is fitted with four sleeve packed valves of no volume change type on the base. These valves are used for cell pressure, pore water pressure, drainage or back pressure. The loading plunger of the cell has a dial gauge rest. Loading pad made of penspex for 38 mm dia specimes. Pair of plain discs made of penspex 38 MMdia 6 mm thick. Pair of porous stones 38 mm dia x 6 mm thick. Split sand former for 38 mm dia specimen. Sheath strecher for 38 mm dia specimen. One dozen rubber sheaths for 38 mm dia samples. For synthetic rubber 'O' rings for 38 mm dia specimen. One plastic drainage tube.
