STANDARD: ASTM D 2573
Used to determine the shear strength of undrained (CU) cohesive
soft soils, to firm non-fissured soils on site.
The instrument consists of a T-handle cylindrical body where a
torsional spring is housed, and three interchangeable vanes of
different sizes, used depending to the expected strength of the soil
to be tested.
The vane is inserted into the soil for 60 mm approx., and the max.
torque value is measured on a collar attached to the shaft.
Measuring range: 0 – 240 kPa
The unit, all stainless steel made, is supplied calibrated with
calibration certificate and conversion table and complete
with three vanes dimensions (diameter x height) 16×32, 20×40,
