Developed with ultimate flexibility in mind, TestLab test and control software caters to all levels of operator experience. By using pre-programmed
Method files, an inexperienced operator can run a range of international test methods without the need for any programming.
Moreover, a test Wizard, available with popular tests, can guide the operator step by step based on a “recipe book” approach.
Most importantly, the experienced engineer and/or researcher need not be constrained by the functions and analysis in the method files provided.
The operator may clone, modify and/or generate his/her own method file to suit their specific requirements. The Excel based data analysis offers
the operator the flexibility to implement alternative analysis and customize reporting facilities.
TestLab allows for real time graphing of results and configurable real time transducer levels display with unprecedented clarity of results and
analytical power. These features make the TestLab software the optimized solution for the new Matest Triaxlab Automated and Cyclic Systems.

TESTLAB, A NEW APPROACH
TestLab is an open architecture user programmable software application. Our engineers have taken the time to review all the relevant international
test standards and used TestLab “Test Designer” to program method files according to these standards. Basically, any of these tests can be
designed, cloned and/or modified by the user within TestLab. The user is no longer restricted to the test applications provided at time of purchase
the possibilities are only limited by the skill and imagination of the user.
The TestLab materials testing software is designed to interface with
the CDAS and a wide range of Pavetest machines including Automatic
TriaxLab system. A TestLab Manager interface allows users to
easily and efficiently locate the necessary method files to load and
The method files for soil testing include: saturation, consolidation,
CU compression test, CD compression test, UU compression test in
– ASTM 04767, ASTM D7181, BS 1377: part 8
– ASTM D2850, BS 1377: part 7
TEST METHOD SELECTION
The operator can run pre-programmed Method files, in accordance
to the requested Standards, or configure an application test and then
save that configuration to a customised Method file. This includes
the real-time transducer and calibration allocations, comprising all
the stresses, strain and volume changes for automatic triaxial testing;
control parameters for the Pressurematic; solenoid valves and
triaxial frames; terminal conditions as for instance end of stroke or
maximum capacity limits, test pause features for the Pressurematic
live control, additional options to hold the stress and strain applied
to the specimen.
