Graduate Geotechnical Research Laboratory at Case Western Reserve University

Case Western Reserve University (CWRS) has issued this site which contains brief descriptions and a few pictures of the machines used to study soil characteristics at the CWRS soil dynamics lab. Most of the information is about torsional shear devices and tests that can be done with them. The testing and data acquisition systems are fully automated and are properly interfaced to allow microcomputer controlled testing. The Soil Dynamics laboratory at CWRU is equipped with a computer-controlled freeze-thaw room for sample conditioning and the following advanced devices to study the dynamic characteristics of soils.
