Transducers for triaxial soil testers developed by RDP.

RDP Electronics Ltd has pioneered the design and development of transducers suitable for use in triaxial soil testers, where ground samples are subject to pressure applied, most commonly by water or oil.

A triaxial shear test is used to measure the mechanical properties of many deformable solids, especially soil, sand, clay, and other granular materials or powders. Design of the transducer calls for a physically small device, preferably with a through bore permitting cleaning when contaminated with debris, and it is of particular importance that the transducer is waterproof. RDP has now designed a wide range of transducers with different armature and cable configurations to optimise their suitability inside a triaxial tester chamber.

Further guidance in selecting transducers suitable for triaxial testing can be obtained from the RDP engineering support team on 01902 457512.
