ShearLab Connect is an extension of the ShearLab Reports S277-40N software, specifically designed for automatic data control,
acquisition, processing and visualization of direct/residual shear tests.
The file obtained can be then added to a project created with ShearLab Reports S277-40N, which features are detailed on p. 539
The program can be used in a very simple and intuitive way; a dedicated window allows to select the machine the user wants to work with while
a test-specific setup guides the acquisition process, including data collection parameters that best fit the specific test. All test-specific initial,
intermediate and final parameters are calculated based on input of specimen information, such as sample type (cylindric or square), sample
diameter or width (mm), initial height of sample (mm), initial and final wet masses (g), dried mass after oven (g), applied load (kg), grain density
(kg/m³), consolidation time (min).
ShearLab Connect can be connected to one or more shearing machines, thus allowing automatic data control and acquisition during the test.
Each Sheartronic is connected via LAN or serial cable to the PC
