MECATEST Rock uniaxial and triaxial compression tester

ASTM D7012, D7070, D2664, D3967


The servo-controlled MECATEST represents a conventional rock compression testing system with the capability to conduct both uniaxial and triaxial compression tests on large specimens. These tests enable users to derive valuable information such as strength and elastic properties, shear strength at varying confining pressures, angle of shearing resistance, cohesion, modulus of elasticity, Poisson’s ratio, and tensile strength. The system's configuration options include uniaxial compression platens, axial and circumferential deformation sensors, a triaxial cell, acoustic velocity measurements, permeability assessments, polyaxial fixtures, and indirect tension Brazilian fixtures.
